hox,
how do you like your Winchester 3200 ? Especially for video/encoding ?
(i don't do any gaming...)

I need to build a PC soon; my current one is PIII-450 :-?
I do not want to spend too much on CPU at this time. I was thinking between 3000+ or 3200+ to get me by until dual-cores come down in price. It seems to me that between 3000 & 3200 the price difference is much greater than performance difference (percentage-wise).
(unless I plan to OC, which I didn't decide whether I want to do...)

Or does it still make sense to fork out extra $40+ for the 3200+ ?

Well, there was no change to find SanDiego or Venice.

And the none of the hard disks were SATA-2 (NCQ), so I stick with my two Quantum with SATA to PATA converters until new drives arrive.

The K8N No4 Platinum nForce4 Ultra is a great mb :D it can have 4 raid 0 or 2 raid 0+1 drives, very impresive.

And yes when dual core comes I will hav it :P
