why amd? - Page 3

post #21 of 99
I recently was in the same position as you, I bought an e2180 and a gigabyte p35 ds3l for 130 dollars shipped. The system was a beast, I clocked my e2180 to 3.73 ghz and it goes head to head with the e8400 I have now which says alot because the e8400 is one of the best cpu's for gaming at the moment. I can definitely say that it destroys most dual core cpu's when it is overclocked+a good batch. Either way nothing can beat the exxx price per performance ratio. So what im trying to say is go with intel over amd, its a no brainer.

Right u are. Intel has no answer for AMD+780G/8200 DX10 IGPs. Intels IGPs are all crap.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813131289 - 100$ with future upgradeability

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103194 - 88$ good bang for the buck

Not alot of experience with these components but have built a system using these components for a local. Im sure someone can point you out to better parts...

As has been mentioned, AMD platforms have the best IGPs, and even good 780G mothetboard tend to be less expensive than any decent S775 board. So, for media PCs, AMD is quite viable. However, in raw performance, or even price for performance, no AMD chip is going to compete on price/performance with Intel.

I went from an Opteron 170 at 2.8GHz (backed by DDR500 @ CAS 1.5) to a Pentium E 2140 at 3.2GHz, and the performance jump was enormous. There is a bigger difference in speed between the Opteron and my Pentium E2140 than there is between my Pentium E2140 and my E8400.

No stock dual-core AMD chip, and only the most highly clocked AMD chips, can compete with the 60-70 dollar Pentium E21xx line. A 3.2GHz E2xxx will beat a 3.4-3.6GHz X2, badly.

The 1M L2 certainly hurts the E2xxx clock for clock compaired to other Core 2 Duos, but even then, it's far faster per clock and per core than any AMD.
