Which cpu to pick? - Page 9

post #81 of 96
Not really I was comparing the X4 810 to the Core2duo and quad both being faster in any situation including most games.

OP wants opinions for his gaming rig not your rampant Intel cockblocking.

at this point in time especially why go with AMD I really cant suggest any benifits realistically besides budget and even thats a little shaky when to get a quad from either side you have to pay atleast 100 for the CPU.

Cliffs.
- OP asks which CPU is better AMD x2 or x4, for his rig
- AMD Members respond with "what is your budget"
- Budget is established at $1,000-$1200 OR CHEAPER
- AMD Members recommend Phenom II x4 955BE or 965BE
- Intel heroes show up and start spewing off in typical fashion for 4 pages
- "Dillmiester's" post comparing the x2 and Core Duo 2 Q6660, which is 5 pages of discussion too late
- AMD member calls him out
- /facepalms start all over again.

Did I get that right?

OP don't listen to all this nonsense, go with what you want, IMO the Phenom II x4 965BE is perfect for you right now, leaving room to upgrade a year from now when the Bulldozer is cheaper.

You don't need to blow $2000+ on a comparable Intel rig regardless how these guys "think" that it will perform better.

*EDIT* for the record the human eye can only see up to the maximum monitor refresh rate IE 30Hz, 60Hz, 120Hz, etc.
if you can combine 2 pc's capability together (blade type)this moment, I definitely will choose double X1100t for $2000, if not Intel's still the only choice, you never go 2000 buck for a single AMD, right?

What's wrong with you? It has to be a language barrier or something.
I listed an Intel config that cost 1180ish after taxes in CANADIAN dollars. You or some other coolster with a similar config said he paid 1100 for his AMD rig.

A Phenom II would be fine if he had a setup and only needed a drop in chip. It would be fine if he had 800 max to work with. With a nice budget of over 1000 human dollars, he can buy a better system.

As for your refresh rate comment.. Which is it? It can only see 3 different things? Do you mean to say you can only see 30fps, 60fps and 120fps and no middle ground?

With comments like that you are really showing that it may not be a language barrier preventing you from frothing at the mouth and actually reading what people are typing out and just flat out ignorance and a general menace to hardware enthusiast community and universe in general.

Yea what hes not realizing is anyone thats used AMD and Intel within the past 3 years can clearly see that Intel is faster especially in regards to latency. A perfect example is PI. This is where games need speed, latency and clock for clock performance. Their architecture is far superior. Just look at the die's.

The speed difference is most noticeable when not gaming. The AMD's just take alot longer to arrive at the same conclusion.

The best choice would be to go with a Phenom II x4 820.

It's a $90 phenom quad core that isn't very far behind the other, much more expensive ones.

OK well I just got home and started reading. I'm FINALLY done! I know intel is better but for multitasking and programs like photoshop but for games i thought it was mostly GPU?

So what I will do is make two lists and see what happens. If price is around the same I think I might go Intel, but I'm not sure :S

BTW thanks so much ajmidd12

Do you need a motherboard and CPU setup?
Please fill in your system specs!
