Hi all, I would be grateful if someone could tell me if there is a noticable performance difference between the Athlon 2600+ and 2800+.
I have whittled down the choices for my new PC to two. Both have similar specs, it's just the processor speed that is different. Also, has anyone heard of the ATI Radeon 9200 All-In-Wonder as I can't find any details of it on the ATI website!
Thanks in advance

Agree with Chegs
I recently upgraded from 1ghz Duron to 2400+ Athlon and to be quite honest it didn't make an earth shattering difference.
True, applications load a bit faster but then I don't play games (they are not allowed on my machine)but I suspect that if they were, I would have noticed a more marked improvement.
