look this may sound weird but im only 12 but i am very into computers(hardware more than software) but mostly just intel. i became interested in AMD wen i learned about the new Athlon 64 FX-53 that just came out. since then ive been explorin AMD products.

right now i hav a Duron 750Mhz runnin on a gigabyte 71XE4 motherboard, 256MB PC-100 SDRAM. im thinkin of buyin an athlon 1.4 GHz CPU for this to upgrade it. it has to hav a 200FSB (rare i kno) to fit my motherboard though. any1 kno where i can find 1??? besides ebay?

o yea and wat is a "thoroughbred" processor???

thanx fer all the help,
and dont underestimate me cause im young i tear apart my omputer everyday and it works fine

Hi. 1.4GHz Athlons for 100/200MHz FSB do exist, but they're not always so easy to come by. Another issue is that the 1.4GHz Thunderbird runs really hot, and draws more electricity than some power supply units can cope with.

Thoroughbred = a type of Athlon XP.
