I have two choice for an ATX system I will be using mainly for internet. The system so far is a TNT2 Ultra 32mb, 3x64mb SDRAM PC100, and Belkin F5D7000 WiFi card. Now my two options are AMD K6-III 450 board with onboard sound ect, not sure excat model numbers, or Pentium III 500mhz with same rear I/O except the P-III has onboard Video which i will not be using. They are both 15USD I just need some advice one which one would preform better for me.

Hmm...that is kind of hard to say. The K6-III 450 is a GREAT processor, but the Pentium 3 is much newer architecture....

Anyone? /unsure.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='unsure.gif' />

Yea thats why I came here, I'm not sure because preformance is so close. IF this was a socket 370 P3 id go that way and save up for a 1.33 P3 which the local computer shop has for 12 bucks, but this is slot 1, and the local shops best offer for Slot 1 P3 is a 750 P3 for 10USD and its not worth it to me

Ok I found a really good deal for 40 bucks my friend is selling me is P3 1.33ghz board and CPU, all I have to provide is SDram. He finally upgraded to LGA775, he is an Intel guy unfortuantly, but I decided this would be my best bet for what I need. Still wish my A64 system hadn't caught on fire, was really nice, what a loss
