Just kidding! :tazz: But! I am interested in what is a decent Intel system these days. I've been out of the game for a while. I currently have a P4 2.4, an Intel board, & 512MB Rambus memory. I don't play games, but I want to be up-to-date. Thanks.

I'm in kind of the same boat as you. I have a 2.6 P4, and I'm itching to upgrade. However, there's really not much of a perfomance boost avaialble (I think a 50% speed increase must be realized to justify an upgrade). The dual-core systems are nice, but will only benefit very limited applications, and heavy multi-taskers. The real exciting stuff doesn't come out until next year when multi-core desktop chips based on the PentiumM become available.
