May switch from AMD > Intel. - Page 3

post #21 of 23
I just did the AMD to Intel C2D switch. It cost me $1K for a mid-range build. Had to replace everything just about (kinda like you). I'm very happy with the new system. C2D performance is amazing and this thing overclocks even easier than my old Athlon XP-M. I've been a long time AMD guy but Intel is back on top with C2D after many years of lagging AMD in price/performance.

An Athlon64 3200+ is no slouch yet. If you can't afford a full convert, a better AGP graphics card could make your system perform awesome still and play the latest games...
