    Didn't you know!??Celeron is much better than amd k6-2 chips..amd k6-2 chips never got good floting points...thats why they are soo cheep.And maybe G400 don't have good 3D-Now drivers and much not support to amd k6-2

    He's right Jedi. The k6-2 is crippled by its poor floating point performance. On the other hand, the G-400 does have good 3dnow! support, but only for the Athlon's improved 3Dnow instructions.

    Actually intelimm's statement about the chip being cheap because of its weak fpu. Ok why is the celeron cheap to? Sorry to break it to you but this is a result of competition, if the statement you say is true. How come the athlon is cheaper than any p3 above 550mhz? Hmmmmm


    That sir is also competition....

    AMD k6-2 450Mhz is as cheap as Celeron 400Mhz for now...but celeron got its L2 cache stick on its chip with full speed but celeron 500Mhz is not that cheap

    Athlon is a great chip...yes it does.Last 4-5 months ago...intel Pentium !!! chips is very pricy.And when athlon chip starting its sells at lower prices...intel got to keep-up too attract their customers...now...both athlon and pen3 is selling at comfortable prices except 700Mhz +++. But athlon mobo's are double the BX's boards prices...rather buy a GEForce
