Thread: Building A New Computer

  1. #1
    I took some advice from some people here to upgrade my comp, i really want to get an amd athlon 64 3200+ with a asus or gigabite motherboard. i never really had an amd before so is it good with gaming/running a server/linux? avoiding intel chip b/c its way to damn pricy. :

    ya it will do same as an intel chip, some things even faster, but for teh most part you wont notice a difference anyway. both are good, so i prefer amd cause of the price.

    Amd is cost effective, yet if you are a consumer that likes to listen to music, edit photos, upload websites, design websites, run a virus scan, play multiple games, look at multiple browswer windows, you will find yourself getting caught with an AMD not being able to run multiple programs even though it has a good clockspeed.

    ya i agree, pentium 4&#39;s are not that much better than amd processors. the ones with hyper threading can handle multitasking better, but they require that teh program be written to use hyperthreading anyway...

    and amd isnt the one wiith higher clock speeds, intel does.

    AMD is the way to go. Asus and AMD are good together.

    64-bit 3200+ is still better then any intel chip.

    I just watched that nick berg video. If I was face to face with those mother fuckers... id kill them as slowly as posible.

    Dollar for dollar, you will get more for your money with an AMD.
