Re: amd or intel
yeah, again, as we've prolly had this discussion many many times, amd pwns when it comes to general gaming and the such of mulitasking and staying cooler and being cheaper. currently, if you want to play games, i say go for the 3400+ or where ur budget goes, whether up the fx-55 is the best in the world, or the 3200 or the 3000 or even the 2800 which arent bad either. dual cores will be the best for just those mulitaskers, espeically the extreme ones. for gamers, it wont make a difference, one or two. actually, one would be faster because of the concentration. yeah. socket 939, san deigo core. indeed.
Macbook Pro and Logitech z5500s. All you really need.
