    Can anyone tell me how athalon processors compare to Duron? Is a 1.6 in
    both similar speed wise or is one quicker than the other?
    Any useful links?

    In all fairness, you could visit AMD's site and have a look at the different
    specs and see for yourself.

    The Duron has the same core as the Athlon, but less L2 cache; 64 KB for
    the Duron, 256 KB for the Athlon, and 512 KB for the Athlon Barton core
    CPU.
    The default FSB for the Duron is 100 MHz (200 DDR), 133 MHz (266 DDR)
    for the Athlon, and 166 and 200 MHz (333 and 400 DDR) for the Barton
    core Athlons.
    The different CPU's and their specs are listed here (towards the end of
    the page):

    Unfortunately, that's a bit too broad. Even within the Athlon family itself, there are a number of versions and
    generations to add to your confusion.

    A couple of hours at AMD.com should have you straightened right out.

    Duran Duran were a 5-piece band, whereas A-Ha were just a trio. Accordingly
    it is fair to surmise that all other things being equal, Duran Duran will be
    better.

    Hope this helps.

    In an attempt to be clever, you just put egg on your face. How did you
    get DURAN from DURON?

    He did spell Athlon wrong though, so perhaps you could have another go?
