Learning: AMD

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Alright~I just wanted to learn about the AMD motherboards and cpus. For example: how the performance is?

Good budget system? That's what I would like to see, using the AM2 Socket, um the Anthlon 6000+ Windor 3.0GHz cpu. Thanks.

Just gathering information. It's like I saw God's finger pointing me toward a AMD system.

I would get the 5000+ Black Edition before I would get the 6000+. It can OC to 6000+ speeds pretty easily, and is cheaper.

As for a motherboard, something with the AM2+ socket may be more what you're looking for, so you can upgrade to a Quad Core Phenom once they get a little better. If I could get any AMD motherboard, it would be the AM2+ DFI Lan Party Board (790FX? I'm not sure)

In general, Intel is better, but for the price difference, the performance gain in most applications is marginal. Lots of people will tell you to go Intel, but all it will really do is boost Benchmark scores and give a slight boost in a few select apps. If you aren't made of money, AMD is a great option. If you plan on spending $1,000+ I would probably go Intel, but you could have an AMD Quad Core system for that (they are pretty finnickey from what I've heard)

Hope this helps,

Well first off it's Athlon, not Anthlon.

Also I would recommend the Athlon 5000 Black Edition instead, all the Blackies have unlocked multipliers so they can overclock alot easier. The 5000 will usually hit 3.3Ghz-3.5Ghz

If you're looking for an mATX overclocker then go with this

ABIT NF-M2SV
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813127048

Otherwise I would recommend

DFI INFINITY NF SLI-M2
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136021

While the DFI running a quite old chipset, it's also the best AM2 overclocking motherboard ever made, the thing is a beast and dirt cheap too.

If you're not afraid to send some cash then this is the best board to get

DFI LP UT 790FX-M2R AM2+

I have that TA770 and a dedicated post on it.
If you consider it I highly recommend you read my post on it first!
Good mid range OCer, rather finicky though and the same CPU did better on the Crosshair.

I also have a dedicated Crosshair post too... BTW mine went bad, the voltage regulation is really screwed up on mine
