Which combination will give better performance Amd Vs intel

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
My friend just approached me asking me about building a new system for him, hes usually a intel man, im an amd guy lol so i need some help, ive recommended him this mobo and cpu:

Amd 3600+ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103046

Asus M2n sli deluxe http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131013


BUT hes asking about an intel rig and im wondering which one would be better the amd or this:

C2D E4300 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115013

Asus p5ne-sli http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131142


Now he wants to overclock and also wants future upgradeability with quadcores, now im not too sure the am2 board will support this, but which setup would perform better?

to be honest...

Intel, hands down.

the brisbane is a great OC'r and good low-mid-end CPU but an oc'd(possibly even stock) e4300 will waste the x2.

If he wants future upgradeability, then I would suggest the Gigabyte P35-DS3R, because it supports quad core, and the upcoming 45nm Penryn, Wolfdale, and Yorkfield chips. It's also a monster overclocker, for the price.

at this point, the only thing that AMD has going for it would be price/performance- so if your friend has the moola go with the intel.
id go with either an asus p5k or a p5n like you said.

i am an AMD fan but i will have to go with intel here.
the brisbane is still based on old technology,despite being 65NM its architecture is not all that diffrent,thus would not give better results then the supirior (at the moment) allendale/conroe intel based procs

thanks for the advice guys, one more thing though

the p5ne sli has sli support but its onli x8 x 8x and not the full 16x, will this hinder performance, or is there a bios update available or something to get full sli support?
