I'm looking to upgrade my cpu/motherboard, and I'm really confused as to which to choose. I really want to go intel this time. Currently running AMD k6-2/400, fic 503+ m/b. Which is my best choice --
A) p3 533 512k cache slot 1 133mhz $209
B) p3 600 512k cache slot 1 133mhz $249
C) p3 500 256k cache fc pga 100mhz $209
I believe "c" is a original coppermine? These are the one's I was looking at, at the dreaded Fry's Electronics. It's possible they have a faster fcpga but it was not on display. I'm also planning on a new motherboard, the plan is an intel chipset. I'm not really happy with my current via apollo. I've read opinions that the slot 1 is on the way out, and the fcpga/370 is the future. Any thoughts appreciated.
