Default Re: Which CPU would be faster?

I have an AMD Athlon 3000+ and it's alright...had it for years.

Anyway, I think this one is better:

the 0.1ghz slower, which isn't much noticeable, but it has a larger cache.

K and Arctic Silver Thermal Compound good? Or is there a better one for maybe 6 or 7 $, anything above that is ridiculous.

Oh and would a 350W psu work good with this? Cuz it(the CPU) seems to be 125 watt.

I don't know a lot of stuff about cooling and heatsinks etc.
But for the PSU, there's some calculators where you put in your hardware and it gives you an estimate of what PSU you should get. Remember though, it's an estimate, so to be safe I would get one a tad higher than the calculator says.

Here's the link:

(there's also other ones so just Google around if you want them)
