Just a quick question- What would perform better over all a thunderbird 750-800 or an Athlon classic 950-1ghz. I'm asking because I'm gonna get a new slot chip for my motherboard and with out modification it seems my board will only run up to a 800 slot a thunderbird but up to 1ghz athlon classic. If anyone knows how to modify the board though, I'd love to know that as well. It's an Asus K7V.

it's possible that this is a problem with the cache ram on the slot processor...the latest beta cache 8.01 I believe adds cache speed adjustment...I am also using a k7v

the k7 tbird is SLIGHTLY faster than the slot a but not by much... i have run a k7 1000 slot a and a tbird and the tbird avg about 6 fps more and rendering speeds of 3d modeling the slot a was fater for 100 meg image it was about 3 secs faster.. BUT key to this is the slot a is alot easier to set up and it runs ALOT cooler.. so if you want a cpu thats gonna last you get the slot a classic
