can you better this intel build for me AMD guys?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am going to be ordering all new components to get ready for a build on Friday this week...The PC is going to be used for gaming ONLY, nothing else...My main goal is a high FPS machine, this is what I came up with on the intel side of things, see if you CAN come up with something you think will be better on a AMD build for equal or less $$$$$....I only need recommendations on the CPU and MOBO, I'm already decided on the 8800 graphics card.

Here's what I decided on the Intel side of things:

any help on a better or equal but cheaper AMD build would be appreciated!!!

You're going to build an Intel computer 2 days before prices drop?

For the money, you're not gonna do any better with AMD. You'll actually get better FPS with that Core 2 build.

That's how he rolls!!!

But seriously. If you wait another week, you can pick up a E6850 (Or is it X?) for less than that E6700.

I would say go with:

AMD Athlon X2 3600 Brisbane
Biostar TForce 550 Motherboard

With both of those, go with a GREAT air cooler like the Tuniq Tower or Thermalright Ultra 120...then overclock the hell out of that processor (people usually get at least 3.0 off that CPU). That would be what I would go for, for AMD. You could always look into an Opteron around the same clock speed, but it has twice the L2 cache, so it would compare easier to a Core 2 Duo I would think. But the Brisbane X2 3600 overclocks like a dream, so that would be what I would go with personally.

Or you could go all out and get a SLI motherboard and an X2 6000+...but you won't overclock that thing over 3.1-3.2....which is useless for the money.

EDIT: The Core 2 Duo would definately be much faster no matter what the clocks are set to on the AMD. I was only giving you what you asked....what I would suggest from AMD's side. The Core 2 Duos are much better and faster processors currently.

well, the good thing about AMD is that their future processors will be backwards compatable (so we have been told). If they change sockets, say to AM2+ or AM3, then you should be able to still put them in the AM2 sockets. Other than that, for the best performance, go with Intel.

With that mobo a E6600 will overclock just as good if not better than a E6700
