Athlon X2 6000 or an E6600 - Hard upgrade question.

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Okay, first of all, I'm not sure if this is the correct section. If not, inform me of a better place, and I'll use that in the future. A mod can do what he sees fit to this thread if it breaks any rules or regulations.


Now onto my question. At the end of the year, I'm going to get an upgrade. My biggest question is, an Athlon 64 X2 6000+ or a Core 2 Duo E6600.

Reason is, I currently have a 64 3500, as you can see. And since ATI and AMD have teamed up (or bought eachother out, I don't know), I thought there might be some upsides to sticking with an ATI + AMD rig.

Second thing. I have devised 2 likely options. Both seem like good options, but I know better than to not get a second opinion. And I'm quite sure this place is the right place to ask.

1.
Athlon 64 X2 6000+ = $239
ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe = $289.00
Corsair VS1GB533D2 1024MB Value Select PC-4200 (1 x 1GB) X2 = $65.00 ($130)
= $658

2.
Intel Core2 Duo E6600 = $309.00
ASUS Commando Motherboard = $329.00
Corsair VS1GB533D2 1024MB Value Select PC-4200 (1 x 1GB) X2 = $65.00 ($130)
= $768


SELLING MY STUFF:
Asus A8N-E = $143
Athlon 64 3500+ = $68.64
2gb RAM =??
Total = 211.64

Deduction:
1. 446.36
2. 556.36


What do you think? The 6000 system is cheaper, but better (?).

On a budget. And the site I'm getting them from doesn't have a P5K.

Aslo, note that this is in Australian currency.
