    regarding upgrading my pc

    my present configuration is AMD1400M Hz+GIGA BYTE-7DXR+784 M BYTE DDR(266 MHz)+MAXTOR(40GB+40GB).
    I am ordering
    P4 2.4 GHz(533 MHz FSB)+SOYOP4X400 DRAGON ULTRA PLATINUM EDITION+1GB DDR(400 MHz)
    Is this the right choice.....any better alternatives.......looking forward to your opinions ASAP.....and any good shopping sites on line to order it from.....

    That's a good choice, although i'd go to Athlon XP 200x, MSI k7 T Turbo 2 (or more), 512 Mb, 80 GB, GeForce4 FX, Windwos XP and Linux Mandrake 9.0

    If you want to buy it part by part then Amazon.com is a good option... maybe the best site to securely shop online. I have bought many things there, computer related and other stuff too, and never had problems with my credit card or shipping there.

    Good luck!!!

    OK,

    I have tested both precessors and for games/graphics, i'd choose Athlon XP, then for work like design or scrolling over your OS (Windows mostly), (i mean a lot of programs opened at the same time in your screen), i prefer P4. I have seen many enterprises testings over the Internet and they say different things, some say P4 is better and some AMD. Personally, i decided to test them my own, and have decided to assemble a clone PC with AMD Athlon XP. I'm a gamer too, so maybe your choice could be P4 if you want to work. Don't forget about enough memory too!!!

    Bye.
