i'm not here to hear what is the better performing brand. i started this thread to get some information about AMD and their sockets... and then some dude comes up that i better should go intel cause they performe better then the AMD's right now.. do i look like i want to compete with intel or AMD for that mather..... if i take an AMD i wouldn't notice that intel is better get the point ?

like i said i just wan't a good performing rig (and got already stuff of AMD so no point in changing to intel).

No need to get all rude an so on. You stated you have a 'huge budget', so anything should be up for grabs then (including McLaren F1 and Enzo). And I am not comparing a Core 2 Duo with 256MBRAM with a 3200+/2GB RAM. If Core 2 Duo is not an option, then just say so (also, a good Core 2 Duo rig with 2GB RAM will cost you less than $1,000). I just mentioned it as a third option, and never said that you 'should get' Core 2 Duo.

Just state your budget then in the future, so we can limit ourselves to what's best within your budget.

My vote goes for AM2, as I stated before. It's known to be forward compatible with AM3 (i.e. AM3 CPUs will fit in AM2 motherboards, but AM2 CPUs will not fit in AM3 motherboard), and thus gives you future upgradability.

Obviously, the most cost-effective upgrade is socket 939, but since you stated 'huge budget', I did not take cost-effectiveness as a high priority.

If cost is high-priority, then get a X2 3800+ with your current rig, and you're all set.

you asked whats better am2 or 939, and the simple answer is if your going to am2 then for the same amount of money c2d is available.

939 doesnt have a future so whats the point staying with that if your gona upgrade.

quite (DELETE) winging about the info your getting.

Well since you were asking about AM2 which would require you to buy a new CPU, Motherboard and RAM.

We are only trying to get you the best performance vs cost.

Ok Let's go from there then.

Most cost effective is socket 939 as I and most others said. Thus, I'd stick with that.

Which parts do you need and/or plan to upgrade, and what is your budget for these parts? (since you already have a PCI-E video card, I'd either not upgrade it at all, or get a somewhat better, but inexpensive card).

Oh, and which online vendor in Holland will you be using?

then stick with 939 and go for the x2 3800, most get to the 3ghz mark quite easily

this way you can use your same ram and motherboard, the 3700 is also a good cpu as its really really cheap now, and also gets over the 3ghz mark easily

first a new mobo and power suply, then later comes a new proc, gfx and DDR

probably more then 1 store... (www.azerty.nl | www.alternate.nl for now)
