    I am mentioning the prices for a new CPU.
    Please help to decide on my behalf what is the
    best solution for me to upgrade.My interests are
    gaming,programming in Java,Oracle,C,C++ etc and
    applications like Photoshop,illustrator,Fash,HTML.
    i ALSO BURN CDS.

    Config 1
    Intel p4 2.0 Ghz
    Intel 865gl motherboard chipset
    128mb ddr ram (hyunDAI)
    40GB HDD
    cd WRITER
    this one costing me around 15800 bucks

    config 2
    Intel p4 1.8 Ghz
    Intel 865gl motherboard chipset
    128mb ddr ram (hyunDAI)
    40GB HDD
    cd WRITER
    this one costing me around 14800 bucks

    config 3
    Intel celeron 1.79Ghz
    Intel 865gl motherboard chipset
    128mb ddr ram (hyunDAI)
    40GB HDD
    cd WRITER
    this one costing me around 13800 bucks
    I am not considering any AMD solutions.

    My second query is about motherboards.
    Is there any difference between the original motherboard
    and the chipset of same motherboard.Whcih one is better
    and is more feasible to upgrade or buy to.

    Hi Sidbit

    I would recommend you for AMD. You can get a better performing system for a similar price. But still if you wish to go in for an Intel system. I would recommend additional 128 MB RAM atleast and make sure it is DDR 400. In case you are going for a good motherboard like ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI then its OK if you go for the same chipset otherwise go in for the the Intel motherboard.

    Isn't an HT version of the 2.0 available?
    He cud try that.

    Definitely increase ur RAM to at least 256mb. U know that dell and gateway put 128mb standard on their comps way back in 98?

    What do u mean by original mobo?
    Gigabyte's mobos on the 865 chipset are just as original as the generic intel ones. Basically they might have a few extra features.
