What to get.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am thinking of getting a C2D 6300 for christmas. However i'm no fanboy and i want to explore all options. I figure the C2D might be a little too expensive for my dad and i was wondering what kinda of AMD cpu/mobo combination would be best for in this price range?
So you know how much the other stuff costs, here are the links:
6300 / DS3
I don't care if it's am2 or skt939 as long as it clocks well

Invest in a Core 2 Duo setup or an AM2 setup, don't invest in dated technology like the socket 939. I personally would wait for AM2 to mature along with DDR2 and see how Intel and AMD compare then. In the near future AMD will be coming out with a new architecture that will utilize DDR3 and perform better then the Core 2 Duo. They are both great processors and it is a win/win situation, but right now the Core 2 Duo is the king.
