a 2.4 and a 2.6 GHz P4 processor? I know that it's 200MHz, but speed wise is there really that much difference?

if you got a choice, go for the 2.8. i think there is a fair bit of difference, but im not sure.

I'm updating my old comp from 1.6GHz to 2.4, that was the reason behind me asking.

The new one I'm building is going to be an AMD 2800+ with a Gigabyte GA-7NNXP, NVIDIA nForce2 Ultra 400 MoBo. My case I'm buying has 7 fans, so it should keep everything nice and cool.

Upgraded my own PC from an AMD 1333 Mhz to a new 2800+ Mhz AMD XP and I can tell you it's surely worth the investment.

I'd have to agree with the people before me that the AMD XP 2600+ or 2800+ is the best buy, for me it was the AMD XP 2800+ in any way.
