    Edit: ta for the links.

    Interesting, me is thinking that this could be the ideal solution for a SFF, quiet, living room PC capable of doing High Definition scaling (with relevant bits) video, music etc.

    Perhaps there is a use for Intel yet, price permitting of course.

    Indeed, and there is a barebones PC with the Pentium M. Actually there are 2, both from AOpen.

    Boogle - thanks I shall have to look into that.

    Moderators - thanks very much for editing my last post for me. I should know better than to abuse people (even if it is the Deputy Prime Minister.)

    Please accept my apologies.

    Personally, as someone who primarily plays games, AMD all the way. At the moment anyway, I had a p4 2.4 before my current system, and it ran very well

    PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT

    Zak, that's me, would like to apologise for claiming, totally wrongly, that P4 2.4's wouldn't Hyper Thread.

    I was wrong, wrong wrong wrong, and more wrong. So wrong in fact, that I shall now say sorry. Again.

    SORRY
    I was wrong.....sorry.
