Hello,
I am building another computer and need a new one. I was planning to get a better one for my current computer and using the old one for the new computer. So anyways, I was reading a PCMagazine article on upcoming CPU's. The article said that AMD would unveil an Athlon XP named Paris. The Paris chip is supposed to be a crossover chip using the Athlon 64 core and socket 754, but it will run only in 32-bit mode. Then AMD is coming out with better versions of this chip. It didn't mention anything about a faster socket A processor, which is what I need. My questions are: will AMD make any more Socket A processors that are faster than the 3200? Should I get a $50 Athlon XP 1800 or this $190 Athlon XP 3200? Do you think the price of the 3200 will go down much?

The Athlon XP has been designated at AMD's new low end processor (replacing the discontinued Duron). As CPU prices will always get lower with time, you are better off getting the 3200, tho running a 3200 with Windows 98 seems fairly pointless. Why are you keeping 98?

Thanks, brunt. How will the mobileness affect speeds? And if I did get that mobile processor, what fan would you recommend for 3200+ speeds?

Howdy HuckerJ.. As for the mobile effecting speed's it won't. It is a very good overclocker and stays pretty cool!
For Fans I have 2 one is louder than a vacuum but does what is meant to do the other is a little more quieter

Loud As Heck


Not Very Loud But still does the job

I was searching newegg and found a regular 2500 for less than a mobile 2500. Is there any reason to go with the mobile?

ok :flowers:
I'm going to order the "loud as heck" and mobile 2500 tomorrow. I really was hoping to get a retail version of the processor so I could get an AMD sticker for my case. oh well :thumbsup:
Anyway, thanks for the advice.
