Hiya guys. I'm about to pour my nerdy heart and soul into a build, and I'm almost done all the planning. I just want to double check something. Do you guys think I would get a very noticeable performance increase If i move from a 2.2GHZ Amd Athlon XP with 512 cache to a 2.4A P4 Intel with 1 meg cache clocked at around 3.2-3.6 ghz? I'd really hate to put all this time into it and have it be a big flop and a slap across the face.

Honestly, I don't have the slightest idea, But I want to hit 4ghz more than anything else in the world. Haha, I'd get an opteron but they're scarce and expensive. I'm making a new 'puter near the end of the summer anyhow, So really this is just a fixer upper 'till then. But after that it'll become a 3.6 ghz server.

Yeah I might... I am so done with this system. It makes me so angry. I cant go over a certain speed. My fsb CAN go higher, but everytime I try a higher fsb and a 10X multiplier I get phooey!
Ugh. Actually the 3700's aren't looking so bad. Question I've gotis how long do ya reckon they last? Before they get "old"
