Default Re: Amd Vs Intel

ok...i have narrowed it down to the e8400 and the phenom 9850 !

i hear the e8400 will rape the 9850, but....
if i get a e8400 my total build will cost $400 +
if i get the 9850 + motherboard combo at new egg its only $360

i doubt i will notice a significant lag/slowness (in gameplay, movies, surfing internet, running adobe and microsoft apps) in the 9850 cuz i'm not overclocking...so the 8400 for $40 is not really worth it?

oh yea...wats the socket type for the Phenom II

The E8400 will perform better for single and dual-threaded games today, but as time goes on more and more games will have more threads. Then the quad core will have the advantage.

Phenom II' are socket AM3. AM2 is physically the same, and most of today's AM2 boards will work with Phenom II, but you have to check the specific board.
