    Depends on how are you gonna to cool the chip, if you wanna peltier cool your cpu, i think the Slot1 are better than FC-PGA. Otherwise, they are not much of a difference.

    I have the 550E SLot-1.. Works fine running on a BE6 board.. I went out and bought the same coppermine chip that Kyle From Hardocp was using for his 550E Slot-1 article. No extra cooling was needed except a GlobalWin Dual Fan. Cpu Temp is at 102F @ 100% Load, and sys temp is at 85F.. I'm running the chip @ 825mhz, 150bus speed, 1.75v. Runs rock steady. I just love the new coppermines

    Just my $.02.............
