AMD vs Intel my story - Page 2

post #11 of 28
Its all up to you mate...

I myself have been with AMD since the K6 and don't see myself crossing over.
I'm very happy with my current rig, even if I can only get the 9850 stable to 2.8 ghz (hoping Asus gets a us a new bios soon). But even at that clock speed I have noticed that it still kicks butt on many chips that clock a lot higher.

I have had 2 amd`s in my life (3800+ & 4400X2)
and they have both bottlenecked my videocards at all times... but with the Intel`s I have had they did not ONCE do that!

Make the jump my friend! I assure you, you will never regret. Even if Intel is a little corrupt.. But it worth it because of the power!

Your main grammar problem is plural objects. English not your first language? It seems it would come easy as the rest is quite good.
That sucks though. Just move over and get a Q6700 for the time being, it seems to be the best bet.

There ARE AM2/AGP boards...
MSI : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130064
BioStar : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138038
They use the VIA K8M800 Chipset, not exactly the best match for a Athlon64 X2 6000+... but when using an AGP video card, nothing is going to match that...
