post #21 of 42
I heard that intels are very hot. and from the ones i have had, they are loud...
But, selectodude is right, get an AMD if you want gaming performance, i have used Intel P1, but switched to AMD and I love it. I may be biased but get md, it is very quiet and cool. My X2 3800 managed to OC to 2750 with 1.45 volts at 58 celcius.
Boards i heard that oc well are the DFI ultra d expert (basicaly the dfi line) and the asus a8n sli deluxe

(no guaranty the one you get will but you get the idea..)

I have plenty more showing that your information is completely incorrect, but I have to ask, what were you basing that on? If you want more, just ask. Read this review, the Intel lost in every single comparison and that was multitasking,encoding,gaming,photo editing,daily apps..

Looks Ok to me. Personally I would get DDR500 rather than 400. It makes for less headaches when overlclocking (you won't need a divider ). Also Hitachi make better SATAII drives, Seagate are always good too.

It's not bad, but spending the same money, I could have a 3700, an MSI Neo4, and a 7800gt. It's your choice though, if you feel the need for dual core, that's all you. The system I mentioned would be a faster performer,though. Even if you kept this long enough to see the benefits of dual core, the better video card would still make it a better gaming rig.

I would say its a good build but my advice would be to wait a bit longer and go with at least a 7800GT card if anything. The 6800GS is a great card for the value, but if your looking for something to last you probally want at least a 7 series Geforce card. Just dont get the 7300 card, its crap to my understanding. If you posted prices for each item it would be easier to help you out and determine your value to what you want to do and how long you hope for it to last.

With the dual core processor I would say that if you have the money its a good buy, with the benchmarks like 3dmark2k6 taking advantage of dual core and games patching to take advantage I believe its obvious that they will be going that route eventually. However when they do it is more than likely that they will still support the single core processors still. You probally wont need a dual core for top of the line gaming until 2008 as any kind of standard.

Yeah Intels Pentium D is mocked as two Presler cores duct taped together. It was just to get out there to challange AMDs X2. The PD gets womped at every benchmark you can do, and their way too expencive considering their performance. Right now man get a dual core, you'll be glad you did in the future, no they dont give a huge boost in performance in games... But thats what 32bit CPU nerds said about the A64 when it came out, and i see a boost with my 2800+. I find it wierd how when ever im on an intel PC, its slow as hell, then even when im on my bro's Athon XP, at 1ghz, its faster. For now, Go for the X2 or an AMD CPU, be cause intels counterparts have been shot off.

Edit: thats a decent build right there. =P

And the 7300 card has 4 PipeLiness!!! ***??

Yeah go with PCIx and a 7 series card.

but amd mobo seems to support up till DDR 400 =/
i'm not sure about that. well the HDD can be rearranged. when i looked it up previously, i was just looking for the lowest priced.
