Need some advise (ce?) lol

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a DFI lanparty Dk and was wondering for gaming what would be the better cpu:

I am torn, any thoughts?

In my opinion, if gaming is your primary concern, I'd spend less on a CPU than I would on, say, a video card. Most games' performance are determined far more by the GPU than they are by the CPU. A cheap dual-core (one that you can overclock) is my personal recommendation.

Good luck!

I would get the phenom. It consumes the same amount of power (125w stock) and can OC to the stock speed of a 6400+ easy (3.2). A 6400+ will only OC in most cases to 3.4 or 3.5 which makes it a complete pile of horse defocation, since a lower clocked 5600+ will save almost $100 and overclock to the same speeds (I have proof, I AM proof )

So yeah, get the phenom, cuz the 6400+ is just a complete waste of time.
