As far as stability goes it doesn't matter which brand, it's all how u OC ur system... Also, C2D overclocks better which means it will be more stable in ur terms.... faster as well...

Either way.... The Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 is the way to go!

I don't understand why you consider AMD.... the E6300 rig will beat it in gaming also, even at stock...

And who said half way stable? I am at 3.4GHz for a while now.... and rock solid.

I gave yuo a link that has like 53 reviews....

Core 2 Duo is right now best performance for ANYTHING, including gaming. Anyone who tells you differently needs to catch up and read up on stuff. The times that AMD was on top is over (for now?).

Best parts for your budget:

- E6300 or E6400
- 2GB DDR2 800 RAM
- A good $125 MoBo (Gigabyte P965 S3)
- An X1950PRO or similar.

Those rigs in that top-10 are all extremely expensive...and you note there are only three AMD rigs in that list.... however, when overclocking is taken into account, AMD is even more left in the dust.

Sad but true, because I'd love to see AMD with a competitive product. Right now its just not there.

Gamers and overclockers = demanding users.

You notice the #1 rated has a Core 2 Duo and the 7900GS. It is good that you are thinking this through, but you should have it narrowed down to a Core 2 Duo, and the 7900GS for the best price to performance. Now you just have to focus on the rest of your system.

We are shooting for a great, completely stable, awesome gaming rig with awesome quality and fps...

Even at stock, that e6300 will blow all of the competition away...

If it aint stable, it int a proper overclock.

No-one on this site runs their PC unstable, except for suicide runs.

If anything, a overclockers PC is a 100 times MORE stable, because we know *** we're doing!

As long as you don't pump an insane amount of volts into a chip, and make sure it passes atleast 12 hours of stability testing, its no more "unstable" than a stock chip.

I was in your shoes not too long ago Mrmikepan.

i was all geared up to build a AMD gaming rig, and all the advice I got from the people on here is identical to what theyre giving you now: Go with a Core 2 Duo!

No one here will lead you astray. Everyone has good itentions and if they didn't, they'd be saying to go with an AMD. C2D rocks the cashbah man, theres no doubt about it!
