AMD GAming build, need help - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Well if you are the one setting it up, why dont you OC it for him?

And if you are doing so, I suggest you DO go intel because its just better. I have a pretty high quality-performace amd cpu (as far as dualcores go) and I am majorly disappointed all-around. Im stuck with it now though.

If you go AMD, I suggest going with maybe the 5600+ windsor, as at least it has the 1m cache and 2.8ghz. Noice that the 5400+ you posted is 2.8 but its also only got 512k cache which is pathetic. I dont understand why amd went from 1m to 512k when history has proven time and time again that more cache is better, but anyways, im no AMD engineer and I dont want to turn this thread into a flame war so thats enough outta me..

Summary

Go intel or go windsor, you wont regret it. Windsor pwns brisbane hands down

Sounds fair. I got myself a G31 motherboard that clocks my E2180 3.2 @ 1.45 volts and it could do alot higher but I am cant because of my 45c idle temps. I am thinking getting the same one for friend because it seems like a good really good clocker and pair it with the E7200 to get about 3.3 clock or so. Thanks guys.
