you could be right.  Most older computers have a smaller front end bus (you
know, I don't remember how fast)  This one is a 350 Mhz and a 100 Mhz front
end bus.  I found that it goes just as fast as some of my friends that have
600Mhz and up.  I think it is because I run msconfig occasionally and turn
off all unnecessary startup programs.  The new pentium 4 are supposed to
have a 250 Mhz or bigger front end buss.
