AMD Anthlon Chip

Just looking for some advice. Building a new 'puter as the last one I built has issues. Was going to use the 1700+ I currently have, but changed my mind. I want new. Got a MSI K7N2 Delta board and wondering what the best bang for the buck would be. Listed as compatable with 3000+ and higher chips,but dont need that high. Thoroughbred or Barton core? Any quality difference betwixt 'em? Looks like 2400-2600 chips are around $100 @ online discounters. I will be having 1GB pc2700 DDR with it. Does anybody know offhand if other chips will work(Anthlon 64,Semperon) in this board? Throw your opinions this way. Thanks!

According to the information on the manufacturer's website:

? Supports Socket A for AMDŽ Athlon?/Athlon? XP/Duron?/Sempron? processors @FSB 266/333/400
? Supports up to Athlon? XP 3000+ processor or higher

Hope this helps.

You want a Barton core processor for that motherboard, as they will run at 400 MHz front side bus without a problem on that mobo, whereas, the Thoroughbred probably won't.

I have the barton core, quite happy with it.. Ive also heard that, that core can also handle over clocking alot easyer then other cores. which can be a plus. and as said from the guy above me, it is a 400 mhz bus, which is very handy. good luck.
