athlon 6400+ or Q6600 - Page 4

post #31 of 50
Take a look at the e8400 too if all you're going to be doing is gaming.


Edit: I just switched from a q6600 to an e8400 and like what I see so far testing/playing/benching.

Do you want Power, Speed, performance, value? If any of the previous is yes get the q6600
yes, because ferrari is ''value''

I recommend the Q6600 OEM with a Thermaltake V1 or Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro.
Q6600 PWNS the 6400+
(I have overclocked my Q6600 to 3.0GHz so far, AND there has been no problems or instabilities yet)

Actually, a Q6600 is two C2D dies on one chip

I would not go with the 680i for ocing the quad, go with a DFI DK P35 or X38 board, unless you can pick up an E8400 or an Xeon E3110 (same chip server version) grab either from tankguys (support the little guy), as games dont really utilise 4 cores...

My point is that noobs like you on OCN are starting to piss me off. Youd give your left nut to prove someone wrong. I hate *******s like you. YOu know what? big deal Get a Q6600 like the nooby fanboy says. Im considering leaving ocn for a while until they start banning People like you who B-ITCH B-ITCH!!!!!!!!!!! Infract me I can care less. bye OCN See you whenever you get rid of some of these noobs.

And to those who think they have more power regarding reps can go to hell. Reps dont mean ****.

DAMN BLEEPAGE!

I wont be Folding for OCN while im gone either...
I don't get it... what's the issue here?
Coming from someone who's relatively unbiased (I have 4 computers: of which 2 are Intel and 2 are AMD - I'm also 50-50 on VGA makers), saying that Intel is currently better than AMD right now DOES NOT make you a fan boy...

It's really quite a shame that AMD is no longer on top and I really hope that they get their act together.... but that doesn't change the fact that Intel has the edge over AMD:
their 21xx series are great cheap dual cores that OC nicely
their C2D lineup offer better performance:clock (and clock up higher) in comparison to AMD X2s (and even tricore phenoms from what I've seen)
lastly, their Q6600 and other Quads have been highly successful in comparison to the PHENOMenon that turned out to be a bust

Speaking from a completely objective stance:
Stating that Intel has the edge over AMD is simply stating fact and not fan boyish
Throwing a fit when this fact is brought up IS totally fan boyish...

I am going to say Q6600. For the price and the power. Can put out a pretty big heat load though. So make sure you have efficient cooling.

coming from the the AMD camp for over 8 yrs now i can tell u that the Q66 will desimate an am2 6400. i had a x2 5600 to 3.4g. yeah it did what i wanted it too but it began to show it's kink in it's armor so now it fate is in the balance whether install it as my htpc proc. I hope the B3 stepping of the phenoms will make a run for it;but Intel has once again thrown a road block in that there quads are going to 45nm. Surely amd won't have to compete against this but with the 65nm intels dropping prices how can AMD compete???? intels 65nm pwns. AMDs line up is pure . I moved only because of price. Intel for there setup is the bang for the buck. it's a smart logical choice there's no love loss or fantantical theories involved. You go where ur dollar strecthes and last the longest.
