#33 I'm a AMD fan myself!!
But when building a complete new system Intel are the smart buy. Yeap that's right the 115$ more expensive system are the smart buy (most bang for the buck).
Gaming performance: 60 fps
Power consumption: 260w
Total rig price: 850$
$ per fps: 14,16$
Gaming performance: 78 fps = 130%
Power consumption: 200w = 60w lower power consumption
Total rig price: 965$ = 113,5%
$ per fps: 12,37 $ = 87,3% = Intel is over 12,5% cheaper
When the first Core 2 Duo came out, AMD's "smart buy throne" had been compromised and now it seems AMD is falling further behind
This has been proved by tomshardware in an CPU article posted 11/02-2013, so not pulling your leg, wish i was!
This has been hard to admit but:
Dear AMD, we had a good run, you've always been my nr1!
But now our ways split, you're going down the workstation road
i'll stay on the gaming road with my new friend Intel Edited by Waszipa - 4/1/13 at 12:19pm
