Which is better

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I am thinking of upgrading and want you guys to post in order of best to worst.

amd FX-62
amd 6000+
AMD Opteron 1218
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Brisbane

and to those who feel they must comment stupid things like "buy intel", I have been screwed by intel one too many times in the past so I don't care if I lose some speed, when it comes to good customer service, I choose amd.

Go with the 6000+. They are good overclockers and at stock are about as fast as an E6600.

I have my x2 6000+ stable at 3.35 ghz at the moment I have only had the chip up and running around 5 days now. I am still toying with it and testing it out but its been solid so far.

With that being said its really about the money for most people. Sure you can get a lower 3 series brisbane and hope for a nice OC or if you can find a 5 series and im sure it will clock well but its all about saving some cash. % wise the 6000+ is a terrible oc'er but it guarantees you 3 ghz and the ability to probably reach 3.2 -3.5 with a decent setup.

Its all up to your wallet. I personally got a 6000+ just because i wanted something top of the line with a guarantee 3 ghz to hold me over until Phenom Quad core (barring major suckage) ...

Good luck
