Default Re: AMD or Intel

my friends 2.8Ghz Northwood went up to 3.6 24/7 on air. The ONLY thing bad about northwoods is NSDS, yes, NSDS. What that stands for is Northwood Sudden Death Syndrome. It happens quite often with overclocked processors where one day, it just decideds to commit suicide. Why is beyond my knowledge.

True
I'm glad I have a new pc now, the XP 2400+ was holding me back a lot, couldn't get past 15 fps in HL2 Episode 1 no matter what graphics settings I put.

Weird.. I heard that those northwoods couldn't get better than 4.1 ghz without crashing, but I didn't know they had the tendancy to just die out of the blue while overclocked..

just to clear this up for everybody..... amd crushes intel in 0-175 dollar processors...but from there up intel is the winner hands down. intel core 2 duo will beat the x2 models easily...if you dont belive me check toms hardware comparisons...the benchmarks prove it!!!!

Lol, the poll is ultra close. With more than 200 votes, it's 106 to 101--lifetime.
