    This is just a link to a good overview of the Springdale and Canterwood chipsets, and their functionality:

    And AMD:

    Thank Xbit Labs for that.

    I am definately going to upgrade when this the 800 MHz system but with HT and DDR 400 comes out for slower speeds than 3.0 GHz. To which, I don't know exactly. I think, however, that my choice will be the 2.6 GHz with hyperthreading technology with an 800 MHz system bus and 768 MB DDR 400.

    Right now I am running a 2.0 GHz with a 400 MHz system bus and 768 MB PC 800 RDRAM, which is still excellent, but I am exited to put it together and am gathering information from the messages on this board and planning on building this myself. I am wondering if I can afford it, and what to do if I have to get rid of my old tower whether or not I should replace it entirely or reuse components. My budget is approximately $1,000.

    Checkout googlegear for the 800Hz FSB P4 2.6MHz & 2.4MHz ($265 & $219).

    Right now is not the time to buy, because price drops are imminent and HyperThread is too.

    Apparently, according to the above article, the 2.6 w/ HyperThread w/800 MHz FSB will be approximately $218. However, for HyperThread to even function, I need the proper chipset, (the 875 Canterwood model is supposed to be the premium) that supports 400 MHz Dual Channel DDR and RAID.

    The above article says May 11 but I guess those dates are a bit off, I hear May 22...

    Hey thanks, here it is:

    Thanks for the lead. Now I know where to look.

    Here is the detail on the best chipset
