I have been watching the -hardware list, and quite a few people are having
problems with the new K6-200's, but that can also be because of
non-correct settings on the MB.  The Intel 166-MMX is fast, though you pay
for it...If you want a decent processor for the buck, I would reccommend
looking in to the Cyrix line.  We run three 150+'s from a while back and
they perform well and we haven't had any problems with them.  I heard the
200+'s are a good chip, but you need a good motherboard for them.. The
Asus you have should handle it no problem.  Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't
mind having a new Intel 200-MMX, but I just can't see spending that much
for it yet.  As you noticed, I am a little biased for the Cyrix chips.  We
have had pretty good luck with them, so we like them.

Just my $.02
