I was looking to put together an amd 64 box and realized they have
several models, I thought there was one AMD64 (Opteron), but it looks
ATHLON 64 CPU SOCKET 754
ATHLON 64 FX CPU
ATHLON 64 CPU SOCKET 939
The box (Shuttle) I want to put it in only seems to support socket 754
So, with Opteron and FX out
I'm now deciding to go with Athlon 64 or Athlon XP.
comparing Mhz to $$$ Athlon 64 is a better value.
(it's a moving target but that seems the best vendor at the moment)
and it looks like:
AMD Athlon 64 3400+ Processor Socket 754, 512KB @ $220.00
on the Shuttle SK83G.
Does this look like a good choice? Have I missed something?
