Tom’s Hardware Guide Mainboard Guide: DDR333 For Athlon: VIA KT333 vs. KT266A – Conclusion: Many New Features With KT333, DDR333 Performs To Full Potential Only With CL2 – Fastest Chipset For AMD CPUs Asus A7V333, MSI KT3 Ultra, Gigabyte GA-7VRXP and the VIA reference board VT5615A are the ones to try for KT333
VIA KT333 Chipset is best. A total of 26 various benchmark tests clearly shows that the VIA KT333 chipset the best and most capable chipset for AMD CPUs. With only a few exceptions, not even the Nvidia nForce with its expensive dual-channel technology (DDR266) can put up a real fight against the newcomer KT333. With the launch of the KT333, the KT266A will become a thing of the past – you simply won’t want to miss out on all the new features such as ATA/133, USB 2.0 or DDR333 support. So the thing is to get the KT333 with CL2 DDR333 memory for this board and make sure the CL2 really is CL2 DDR333

Tom’s Hardware Guide CPU Guide: Athlon XP 2100 : AMD Turns Up The Heat – Conclusion: The Athlon XP 2100 Outclasses the Pentium 4/2200 The unveiling of the Athlon XP 2100 propels the Palomino core to its penultimate level – according to unofficial comments, AMD will present the Athlon XP 2200 in a matter of only a few weeks. The presently fastest Athlon XP runs at 1733 MHz, while the Athlon XP 2200 runs at a clock speed of 1800 MHz. Interesting note as I build my next machine. I think I’ll take my current server and make it a desktop and then get an Athlon XP 2200 with DDR 333 board. That should be about $500 or so to get roughly 4x the performance. What a change from 3 years ago!
HDTV-Digital Television News ForumA great way to find out about HDTV
DBSForums Discussion Forums. On my list is to get a high definition satellite system. I can’t get HDTV over the air here nor does the cable system support it
Earthweb Hardware and Systems: Computers: Weekly Platform Trends: Intel Redesigns the Desktop Again The Tidewater platform is the big news in the form factor area, not only because it fills a market vacuum, but because it will reach the market soon: Intel estimates Tidewater reference designs will be made available in April, with systems in the retail channel later this year. This is news that will surely receive a warm welcome; I’ll be counting the days till I can replace network or home server PCs with a smaller form factor, while gaining the inherent benefits of an industry-standard case and motherboard design. — I personally can’t wait to see this Tidewater design. Could be perfect for the small machines.
Earthweb Hardware and Systems: Peripherals: NEC MultiSync LCD1850E Review. A great review of an 18 inch LCD. I have a 17 inch and it is amazing. Never heard of Hardware Central, but seem slike a pretty good site.
AMD processor roadmap.. Trying to buy a new processor for Grace’s new machine is hard. This is a useful site that covers the AMD processor roadmap. Best news is that you can buy a 266 or a 333 motherboard and put the new processor in it since they all use Slot A. That is great!
Building a CD Server
Now that I’ve got the basic server running, the next step is to make it a virtual Cd-ROM server. virtual cd is the one I’ve tried. There are a couple of others. I normally look at www.download.com and see who is doing the most downloads from the last week and then look at the number of folks who are saying it is good. If there are more than 30% thumbs down then I don’t install it. Virtual CD seems like it fits there. I’m experimenting with doing exactly what you are doing. So let’s learn together!
