AMD vs Intel - Page 2

post #11 of 45
I'd be happy to put something together for you on newegg. Do you just need the computer or all peripherals too (monitor, keyboard, etc.)?

As much of an AMD fan as I am, I have to concur with the person who said go with the 2500k. Unless of course you want to wait for Bulldozer and see how that pans out, which is what I'm doing. This round of parts, I'm going with the best performer, and if that ends up being intel, I really don't care anymore. It's just a brand.

1366 get the i7 950
I had no trouble getting above 4Ghz, with the Prolima Megashadow
its a loud rig but stable with low temps
main reason its loud is the stock cooling on the twin GTX480's
I know the 2500k looks great but the price drop on 1366 stuff has been great and they are still releasing new stuff as we speak

OP, go with intel IF you're near a microcenter. The 2500k is 180 bucks there and the i7 950 ~$200. Best bang for your buck, seeing as the upper level AMD processors are right up in that 200 dollar range. Intel performance for AMD price. If you're going strictly online buying then you should go with AMD.

What price drop? The CPUs are still about 300 new unless you buy a used one for around 200, but then why would you when the 2500k is faster than the 950 in most applications and costs 225?

Also, its still more expensive to find a good 1366 board and it costs just about the same to get 2x4gb ram as it does 3x2gb.

If he is going to buy online he should still go with Intel.

Not necessarily, it'd be more beneficial in that situation to put money into a better videocard than pay for an i7.

You have about $80 left for a case, which should be sufficient. This is a badass system.

Going with a 2500k setup you are still going to be paying around the same price as an x6 setup. Yeah, you can add a total crap board to say its not the same price, but then you're just asking for problems. 2500k is an i5 btw.
