Thread: What Is The Best ?

  1. #1
    Im thinking about getting a new pc arroound $3,000 . I have been reading about the new amd 64 bit processers with the hyper transport tech. and the p 4 with the hyper threading tech. I heard that the p4 is still the best. I want to use this for gamming so what do you think is the best ????

    Wait 6 months from now and who knows?

    I'm sure that for 3k you could build a nice system with either chip.

    I believe Pentium is quite much better than AMD. Don&#39;t wait for anything coz after every few months a new product will come out. So I suggest you to buy Pentium whenever you want...

    hmmm....Don&#39;t hear nothing about 64bit technology. Thats what its about to be ALL about&#33; Its a HUGE step in CPU&#39;s. Wait for the Intel "Prescott" which is 64 bits and buy it&#33; Nothing against the Athlong 64&#39;s, just the Intel will be much faster and also 64bit. Wait and buy the 64bit Intel&#33;&#33;&#33; P4s are all about to be outdated (within reason, I&#39;m just saying that 64bit is out now, so I wouldn&#39;t buy a 32bit chip.)

    Now about that budget&#33; That is really nice&#33;&#33; Heres what I would get&#33;

    Intel "Prescott"
    ASUS mobo to support Prescott (ASUS all the way)
    Nvidia FX 5900 Ultra 256MB
    1GB of the FASTEST ram (Prob PC4000 Dual Channel&#33; CORSAIR XMS&#33
    Thermaltake case&#33; You can afford it&#33; GET IT&#33;
    Dress the case up with neons&#33;
    Sony LCD....nothing else bud

    1.75GB PC3200, 2 X 160GB Seagate w/ 8MB Buffer
    HIS Radeon X800 Pro, Antec Super Lanboy Aluminum

    &#036;3000 will get you a NICE gaming rig....

    honestly, i love AMD better, but thats just my opinion..... if you really want that extra 5-7% in performance, then go for it.... otherwise, i&#39;d stay AMD...

    btw... the 64 bit crap IS out, but it didnt exactly amaze the testers or anything.... not a HUGE inrease like they thought...

    as for the rest, he didnt ask our help on deciding it, just the CPU....

    but, if it IS guna be a gaming rig.... Asus mobo, GeForce5900AGP 256DDR, ....shit im copying the dude before me.... oh well, you get the picture...

    1 GB DDR, no more, you shouldnt NEED any more than that, seriously...

    LCD , i would recommend a ViewSonic... Sony are good also....

    cheers, and tell us how it ends&#33;&#33;&#33; :beerchug:

    I like the way you think Metal lol Yeah I know the 64bit wasn&#39;t AWESOME, but still its the future, and 32bit CPU will be outdated. Software will become based on 64bits and everything, but not for a while&#33; good luck&#33; And yes tell us your thoughts now&#33; and what you will get.

    Yeh I think you are right I better wait for 6 mo. I got a 1.7 gig. with 512 sdram and it seems so slow even I know its just as faet now as when I bought it 2 yrs. ago. I got a 400 sys. bus and with amd talking about a sys bus of 1600 and a 3.2 gig. That is so much faster than mine... Where did you here about intel going with a 64 bit system ??? I havent heard nuthn... Also what do you think about the alienware system ???
