    I have an Athlon XP 2600 and FIC KT400A mother board, 1GB ram. I was
    looking at upgrading to something faster as the Athlon 64's have dropped
    in price.
    I can get an Athlon 64 3700+ and Gigabyte GA-K8NF9 mother board for $125
    I see 2 versions of the Athlon 64 one is Athlon 64 3700+ 90nm Rev E and
    the other is Athlon 64 3700+. What is the difference and is it worth
    while to upgrade at this time. I have a Radeon 9800 Pro video card and I
    dont play games much. 1 GB of DDR ram.


    Thank you

    It would have helped if you gave links to whatever versions you see.
    http://www.amdcompare.com/images/us-en/chart_r2.gif might help you figure
    some of it out.

    This "impulse buy" will snowball into a new video card, new memory, new
    hard drive, new power supply...

    I know I bought a AMD 64 4000 Socket 939 for $75 and a Biostar Geforce
    6400 MB for $50 and a Radeon X800 128 for $30. $155 for the package not
    too bad I thonk, comming from a Tbird 2600 and Radeon 9800 pro. I was
    able to use my DDR memory in this board.
