Ok so i'm ging to be getting an updated system next week, thats long overdue. Up until now Ii've been firmly in the AMD corner all the way, however looking at the specs for this system i'm a little concerned.
I was intending to get an Athlon 64 x2 6000+, but everytime I look it up, all I see are things about how its got massive power requirements, in addition to therby running hotter.
My alternative is either to go for a Core Duo E6420, but as it's intel the idea makes me feel dirty
Or I could save myself some cash and go for an Athlon 64 x2 5200+, which would only loose me a small amount of clockspeed but save masses of wattage.
Anyone had any experience of the three mentioned and able to offer advice?
