Thread: Intel or AMD




  1. Default

    Hi I'm building a new computer and was planning on using an Asus P4C800-E Deluxe mobo, but always wanted to use AMD. I've never sued AMD so I'm not fimillar with them. What would macth or beat an Intell with 875 chip and 3.2 P4?

    If your not an aussie you can try newegg.com and look up the amd64. But i don't think there are any good mobos for that cpu yet.

    Stick with the P4C800E but drop the 3.2 unless you plan on chilling it. The 2.4 will reach the same speed efforlessly on air cooling, and be faster at the same speed for a ton less money.

    However, I would recommend to anyone planning to buy the 3.2 to wait for the 3.2 Extreme Edition.

    On a side note, I hit 3.5ghz briefly today with my Aeroflow. :thumb:

    go with amd b/c it can have more clock cycles. just plain simple, if you have a lot of data but less ways to get in it's pointless to have a fast processor. true they don't move as fast but the new amd 64 will blow intel away. :shoot3:

    I think you need some schooling on this. Prior to the A64, Intel has been dominating AMD for some time now. Wait for their new processor, and we'll see some better competition.

    It's funny to see how many AMD guys at my forum have been switching to Intel lately.

    Just remember horses for Courses mate. I have had my two Pc's with the Same Graphics card in. The Amd beats it by about 3K.

    edit: I should mention that they both were clocked to the same speed ghz and had the same memory in.

    Does your p4 tend to be the early version of the p4? Because if it is...that would explain it...

    Um well tell us something we don't already know. You clocked them both at the same speed and you think thats a valid argument? Of course the AMD will win...obviously you haven't been a part of the high performance market as of late. The P4C/875/865 systems continually crush AMD.
