AMD Athlon XP 3200+ processor
From our value for money thoughts we would rather have seen a faster AMD Athlon XP of 166MHz FSB version since this new 200MHz FSB Athlon XP need a new motherboard and DDR memory capable of running at this faster speed. Considering the next generation AMD Athlon 64 is just around the corner as such this increase in FSB knocks buying a faster processor and upgrading your AMD based computer on the head.

The case itself is kind of deceiving At first glance the size and design are much like the Antec Lanboy. But the differences are quite apparent rather quickly first there is no door covering the drives and second a much more aggressive looking front grill area. In the grill is a spot for a case badge now normally people don’t look at things like this but the case badge area is a spot with infinite possibilities and the low nature of this spot would make hiding wires for a mod quite easy
