Well, after being without a PC (and net access!) for about a month, I finally got around to getting my new mobo: an MSI 865PE Neo2 with a P4C 2.4GHz. Very impressed with the mobo, much less so with the CPU. Can't really tell the differance between it and my old P4 1.7GHz (which only had 266MHz DDR!). Runs cool, though
Hypertheading doesn't seem to help one damn bit for my multitasking. Maybe it's because I'm using Win2K, though...it's not quite as "optimized" for HT as WinXP. Anyone got any experance with it on these two OS's? Haven't installed Linux yet; it's my next major project (SuSE 9 Pro DVD Edition, for those who care). At least I should get some good performace form IT...
Down with Windows!
Soon to be proud user of Mandrake 10 (again!). SuSE 9 sucks!
