    my original plan was the throughbread 2600+ but it&#39;s either barton 2500+ at 1.83ghz or 2800+ at 2.08ghz

    2600+ throughbread &#036;165 2.16ghz
    2500+ barton &#036;139 1.83ghz
    2800+ barton &#036;279 2.08ghz

    So will the barton 2500+ befaster than the 2600+ throubread
    Ohh noo!!! I make dribbles!!!

    the benchmarks are very similar for the 2500 and 2600, i&#39;d go for the 2500 though...

    I found this site that explains the diferences to alot of things. I quoted the part about the XP cpu&#39;s

    Palomino, Thoroughbred and Barton (the AMD cores):

    The Palomino core was the original Athlon XP technology and is sometimes referred to as Model 6 of the Athlon series. The Palomino core was used for the Athlon XP1500 through the XP2100. It had 256k L2 cache, a 266mhz frontside bus, and .18 micron technology.

    The Thoroughbred core (also called the Athlon Model 8) started at the XP2200, but later on it was made retroactive to the XP2100, XP2000, XP1800, XP1700, and XP1600. The XP2400 and XP2600 were added above the XP2200. These CPUs all have 256k L2 cache, a 266mhz frontside bus, and .13 micron technology.

    A later revision of the Model 8 Thoroughbred brought two more processors using a 333mhz frontside bus: the XP2600 and the XP2700. The 266FSB XP2600 is not very common on the market and although AMD processors are performance rated, most people prefer the CPU with the faster frontside bus. The 266FSB XP2600 runs at a frequency of 2133mhz, and the 333FSB XP2600 runs at a frequency of 2087mhz -- both get the same performance according to AMD&#39;s mysterious benchmarking system.

    The Barton core (Athlon Model 10) starts at the XP2500 and jumps up to the XP2800 and then the XP3000 (technically there is also a Barton core XP2600 at a frequency of 1917mhz, but it is all but invisible on the market). All three have 512k L2 cache, a 333mhz frontside bus, and .13 micron technology. The XP3200 has a 400mhz frontside bus but is otherwise the same as the other Barton core processors.

    I think the 2500 barton retail @newegg is only &#036;90 usd.

    hmm the fps is faster by a bit

    so... that means

    2500+barton is faster and cheaper than 2600+throughbread
