I HIGHLY recommend the AMD K6 and as much RAM as you can get :)
The AMD K6 200 (what I use) is really nice
It has served me very well...and it has an added bonus...
there is a metal plate attached to the front of the chip (which the heat sink
touches that metal plate instead of the actual chip)
I dunno if that has any technical advantages...
but it makes it rather safe to take some steel wool and remove that
"Windows Compatible" logo off of the front...
not very usefull (and I havn't don eit...YET ..just though tof it now)
but...I am willing to bet it FEELS real good :)
