My Future AMD Build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Alright, I'll building a new PC around the end of summer, so I want to know what technology I should look for then. I want to stay AMD. I'm *pretty* sure that AMD will have some kind of technology to compete with C2D, besides 4x4 (). I think, that if all possible I want to keep my case, PSU, DVD burner, CPU heatsink (Big Typhoon + FM121), sound card, and hard drives. So, basically, what I'm upgrading will be my motherboard, CPU, RAM, video card/s. If all of that requires a new PSU, so be it. I expect to make at least $1500. I think I want to go with ATi this time. I've been an nVidia guy for 2 years and I'm ready to try something different.

So what do you guys know about future technology and how cost effective it would be to do what I want to do. Should I go with Intel? I really like AMD, but I like good performance better.

hmmm... heres my tip on buildin a new rig

prices of processors goes down faster. it doesnt matter if at first u go for normal Athlon socket AM2. u should spend more on graphics , go for 2GB of RAM DDR2 800, performance wise mobo, and GOOD psu.

the way i see it, if u spend $1500 for the stuff i mentioned, u could then save money for a couple of month, n get a very powerful chip.

(look at my rig 4 example).

About AMD or Intel.....im not quite sure, for now C2D leads the way...im just hoping waiting for AMD to come out new CPU.

If its end of summer, then there's really nothing we can do - that's almost a year away, and we don't have a clue how good technologies will be then
