150 dollar dual core - Page 3

post #21 of 31
Looking at the performance charts, such as this one:



I say yes.

EDIT: Just as an observation, you have support from two Intel users to go AMD, so this is not blatant "fanboyism." AMD has some really strong things going for it at this price point.

I cannot find a direct comparison between overclocked Intel dual cores and the new Phenoms. I am just using this chart to illustrate performance.

you mean e7400, its $10 cheaper!

That chart above is total BS, i get the same frame rate as other users who have quads and e8*00 CPUs. Plus the e8400 is the third down the line in the e8*00 series, therefore will not overclock that well anymore since they save the better ones for the e8500 and e8600

I will point out that those numbers are at stock clocks. Does the op want to stay stock?

I'd say most boards can't handle a 671mhz fsb.

the op will not be sitting at stock for long
plan to get the thor hammer when it is released
that being said i am quite sure that the e7400 should be able to hit around 4 on air, but can the amd do the same?

I got the E7400 with MO stepping at Microcenter for $99. Haven't had much time to tweak but I got to 3.2 very easily and haven't seen temps higher than 45c running IBT. I'm at 36/31 idle and prime gets it too 36/33. I'm waiting on replacement ram, one stick was bad from the go so I've only got my 1M stick in for now.

I just got a E7400 and a UD3P a week ago. I grabbed the Scythe Ninja Rev 2 for a cooler. for 40$ I figured best bang for the buck. I RMA'd my first mobo like 2 days later, twice it put all my mobo settings back to default with no warning or anything.

Ive had it up to 3.8 so far pretty easy. But Ive seen over 4ghz so I gotta keep working at it. I removed the heatshields on the NB, I kept check it and seemed super cool... until I reached around and grabbed the heatsink and was almost hot to touch... so thats off and a lil cpu fan mounted.

And as far as AMD and Intel go... Ive been AMD for the last like 5 years at least, and this is my first intel setup since like a P166 MMX. And man, the intels clock much more then the AMDs. Cost a little more upfront, but for OCing, gets you a lot farther. I was set on a 7750 Black Edition AMD chip till my buddy got it. And this setup whoops its butt.

It really makes little difference one way or the other, at least initially. If you plan on running this setup 'till its last legs fall off, then maybe the AMD rig is better, the three cores will ensure more performance in an increasingly multicore software environment.

If longevity is not so much of a concern, by all means, go Intel. The e8xxx and e7xxx perform very well, and overclock nicely.

XS has some serious talent, but here is a nice overclock of the 720:
4.2 GHz

Then again, the Intel setup is capable of much the same thing, assuming you get a nice stepping.

In my experience, stepping doesnt matter with the e7*00 series
