I am trying to upgrade my Cyrix III /128 MB system with a fast and cheap new system. The system is alright for my home use, which we mostly use for Internet, E-mail and Office applications. Now it is 5 years old and I simply want a better system with 512 MB RAM.
I liked the Cyrix processor a lot because of its low power consumption and coolness. Though the system clocks 800 MHz, it is good enough for Windows XP and all the Office, Internet and E-Mail applications.
There are the leading chips like Intel and AMD in variety available in the market. Still I checked with Cyrix people for their new processor. They do not have a solution for the PC now, since they are concentrating on Embedded solutions.
A lot of research is being done in the local market and on the Internet for the pricing, features and availability of different processors from Intel and AMD.
