Yet again a battle between AMD and Intel
I'm going to agree with TRDCorolla and get an AMD X2. I mean I recently purchased on for my new comp (in my sig), and well I now do all the boring stuff (like virus scan, spyware, adware, downloading big files etc) while I'm playing a game. Last night I was playing FarCry on full graphics with HDR enabled while running an AVG Virus Scan, Spybot Search & Destroy Scan, AdAware SE Scan, and downloading the Call Of Duty 2 demo. No lagg whatsoever from my CPU, and I've never managed to get it above 50% useage in the task manager (other than testing/benchmarking it). Dual cores are awesome
Anyone who buys an FX CPU from AMD are insane, the X2 4800 will do just the same but with the added bonus of dual core
X2 all the way dingchavez65!!
