-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The most affordable bang for your buck. (12/28/2000) With chip prices being so low, it almost kills me when I have to pick up a new processor. PC parts have always gone down in price quickly but when a P!!! 1ghz is $450 in December and Intel has it slated for a price cut of almost $175 in January, be ready to cry a little. With this thought in mind, when I upgrade, I try to do so on a regular but scaled back basis. I upgrade a major component about every eight months. I couldn't afford to do that if I was dropping four or five hundred bucks at a pop though, well, not without a divorce I couldn't. My goal is to look at what can give me some big league pop and fit my budget at the time. There are several times that I have $200 budgeted for a chip upgrade. NOT $201 but $200 or less with emphasis on less if possible. I know $300 worth of T-bird will rock my world but not if I can't afford it. Personally, I would love to have an AMD but that means picking up a new mainboard in addition to the chip, more money. A lot of us stick with Intel because, let's face it, there are about a bazillion slot 1 BX boards out there. Which brings us back to the best bang for the buck.
