Shopping for a new CPU

I'm looking to buy a new CPU, but I've run into a problem. My cash is limited. The less I spend, the better off I'll be. So, that being said, I can either dish out $260 for a Pentium-III 800E SLOT-1 256K 100BUS, or I can go with a Pentium-III 700E SLOT-1 256K 100BUS for a meager $200. Do you think the extra 100mHz is worth it, or should I go for the cheaper alternative? I can afford either but, like I said, the less I spend, the better. So, which one do you think I should go with?

P.S. I could also go with a Pentium-III 600E SLOT-1 256K 100BUS fo $165, but 600mHz seems a little slow for my tastes.

Do you have a motherboard that supports those speeds? If you are going to have to buy a new motherboard anyways, I'd go with an Athlon 800 Thunderbird for only $154 (www.pricewatch.com).

Yeah, I've got a motherboard that supports it. All I should need to buy is a fan.

Well, the matter is settled. I found a company with a special on CPUs. I'm going to get an Intel Coppermine Pentium-III 700mHz w/ fan for the low low price of $195. It's the exact same proccessor as the Pentium-III 700E SLOT-1 256K 100BUS, but I get it for $5 less and the fan is included. So, it looks like I can say goodbye to my old Pentium-II 350mHz. Now all I need is a GeForce 2 Ultra to replace my TNT2...

$250? For a Geforce 2 Ultra? Last I checked, they were upwards of $500. I suppose I could get a GeForce 2 MX. They're only about $130 but, like the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. The MX is only slightly better than a GeForce 256 (although, even a 256 is better than my 2-year-old TNT2).

There's a grammatical problem going on here; don't you mean which CPUs?

Symmetrical MultiProcessing is where it's at.

Linux with an SMP kernel and a nice dual motherboard would be my gameplan.

Yeah, but if I go with an AMD processor, I have to buy a compatible motherboard. Since I don't have an extra $130+, I'll just have to settle with Intel.
