Quote:Originally posted by Dante Nah, the 1800 is only like $10 more and can easily be clocked to 2000 or even 2100 speeds. Some have even said to be able to push it to the 2200 speed, but I've never seen this personally. Going beyond the 1800 is silly though, as an 1800 will run you $85-$90 and a 1900 will run you like $115-$120.
Quote:Originally posted by Bothware XP1700+ should overclock to almost the same speeds - after all they are the same chip! - AMD selects the best and brands them at top speed, then selects next best etc.Also the difference in the UK is 11 which is almost 20% more for a chip thats only 6% faster - and will hardly ever be fully utilized
Quote:Originally posted by psych1cvenom Hey everyone! I wanna get a new motherboard/processor and I'm wondering what type of AMD XP processor is the best. I've heard plenty of good things about overclocking the XP 1600s, 1700s and 1800s, but I'm wondering if I should shell out the extra dough and get one of the newer XP 2100+ or XP 2200 processors. Also, If anyone could let me know a cost effective motherboard, fan and heatsink to go with the AMD processor, it would be much appreciatedThanks guys!
