    No point in fighting over it... :cheers:

    If SBGTF doesn't get this for a couple months, the socket 939 boards and CPUs should be out, so it doesn't matter anyway.

    The socket 939 Athlon64's will be.
    Will be being the key word there...we're talking about a current situation here
    Socket 939 hardware is only a few weeks away so why not wait a little? :roll:

    here, so you guys will stop fighting with each other i will post a noob quesiont to get you guys off of that topic and possibly somewhat made at me, based on that you get noob questions like this by the hundreds, i'm guessing it can get quite annoying. ANYways, towards the beginning of the post it talked about timing your ram, how would you go about doing that. also, for amd-man what are the differences and similarities in amd proccesors and intel processors (the new ones, i don't care about the old ones cause that's not what i will be using). also, i'm sure YOUR preference is amd, hints your name, but which do most of YOU think is better and why?
    thanks,

    josh

    the timings are how long a delay there is before reads and writes take place on the memory. to change them you need to change the timings in the BIOS. lower is better.

    im an amd fanboy so i would say the amd is better.
    differences with current processors:AMD64 is 64 bit, amds do more work per clock cycle so can run at a slower speed, they run cooler than p4s.
    p4 has more memory bandwith, higher clock speeds, better overclockability.

    Which also gives AMD's much, much more future potential than all P4's have right now. Actually, Intel is soon to go off of the regular old clock speed rating system anyway, so clock speeds really aren't much for either company anymore as more and more people are learning the megahertz myth. Athlon64's don't necessarily run cooler than P4's. They just have a built in technology similar to whats in AMD AthlonXP Mobile chips that allows the multiplier to drop whilst the system is running idle, for the CPU to consume less power and produce less heat. I'm not sure if the Athlon64 line runs hotter than P4's, but I know the AthlonXP line did. (Of course, the XP line doesn't have the cool down technology) Another advantage of the Athlon64 is NX. NX is basically a built in deal in the CPU that prevents data overflow and such which is a fairly common method of virus execution, although you still do need an AV.
