How many times to we have to say it. This is for building A NEW RIG! Then you go INTEL. If you HAVE an AMD, then KEEP IT!!!

even if your bui;ding a new rig, intel boards supproting C2D are more expensive than AMD 939 or AM2 boards.

I agree with you. My stock OC'd E6300, 8800GTX and 37" LCD look so pretty together. I love the way Project: Snowblind and well...everything else looks

Uhh.. At what settings though? How about another game? considering not many computers can play oblivion smoothly.

And your monitor you have listed is a 19" LCD, not a 40" LCD tv. That does 1280x1024 max, not 1600x1200. Rather, what games can I not play at 1280x1024 max that you couldnt?

Don't be an ass. We are not discussing me or my rigs. If you want to try be a jerk and get me to post pics then make a new thread. I really hate people that just try and ruin other people. It is just sad.

I'm not I'm mearly pointing out the facts...I supplied the proof....Either you lied during the giveaway or your lying now...So which is it...And whats wrong with asking for you bench results ..proving what you are saying and again I quote.

Here is the deal, if you have an AMD Athlon X2 or FX processor then you may have noticed that it might lag in some games, while a Pentium D in an almost identical machine knocks it out of the park. This reason is because some games were not meant for Dual-core. Then why does the Pentium D run them? That is not the point that I am trying to make. You see, after several vigorous tests, the Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 OC'd can beat out the AMD Athlon FX-60 and it is so much cheaper. I am by-no-means telling you all to abandon your AMDs. It just seems pointless to buy an AMD CPU now that they are still more than the C2D (except maybe the 3800+). Also, there is a lesser risk of having to play one of those games that doesn't like Dual-core CPUs. I know EVERYONE is going to say it is because I am an Intel fan. That is not the case. I have played on higher-end AMD rigs and they are GREAT. They just have become obsolete, but remain expensive. Just make the right choice. I hopes this helps at least one person

I have two DVI's. Now you asked me so I told you why I moved. Do you think I moved from my Opteron system for no reason? I researched very well, waited for others (Here, not on review sites) to buy the hardware. They tested and I found out that this CPU would do what I wished. I then transitioned to the new system and YES it does what "I" need.

I am not going to argue with you about what YOU want. Now you begin to tear it down so you can find what will work for your system.

This is why I seldom discuss with you Jori. Read your first post to me. Then my answer, then now your next post.

Complete and utter balderdash. I DO NOT CARE WHY YOU HAVE YOUR SYSTEM JORI!

I care about my system. So I can relax from a distance and on my gaming chair play on my gaming screen. I recline and enjoy myself. How you use your system, and at what settings you use is about you. I said why I use it and why my Opteron did NOT perform as well as "I" wanted.

It's why I moved from P4 630 3.0Ghz @ 4.0Ghz to Opteron 170. Many said it was not much of a difference but yes, it was noticeably different on F.E.A.R.

I moved from 1GB of RAM to 2GB of RAM when I found that the stutter in F.E.A.R. was mostly to do with the 1GB's inabilty to store necessary data. The move to the 170 had to do with the P4's inability to throughput the necessary data for 1600 X 1200. When this was fixed I found that I needed to move to SLi. Remember my 7800GTX's in SLi? Many said it was overkill but on my big screen it was not.

Clearly you have no understanding that other's needs may outweigh yours. If I had wanted to stick with sitting at my desk and playing on a 19" screen with half eye-candy and 1024 X 768 I would still be with my P4.

Sheesh! And you wonder why I seldom answer your posts quoting me Jori. Consider me back on not responding to you again.
