Question CAN"T DECIDE - INTEL OR AMD!!??

Hey everyone! I am in a bit of a rut right about now. First of all, I can't decide whether to go with Intel or AMD for my new gaming computer. I know everyone says AMD is better for gaming, which I also agree with, but seeing all of these pro Intel people gets me thinking: is Intel just as capable at gaming as AMD is? What are your experiences with the two? My second question is, are Intel mobo's going to be using the new 939 interface, or this an AMD only thing? I have one more questiuon that I know is a bit off topic, but I would really appreciate your help! Do you think an ALUMINUM case (Lian-Li P60) with 2 120mm fans can cool just as effectitvely as a case (Antec PlusView AMG1000) with 4 80mm fans (I do plan on overclocking). Thank you very much for any comments or help!

- I don't get home until saturday so it may be a couple days until I can post again! I look forward to your responses.

I love AMD's to bits. But for gaming a 3.2 p4 would be sweet. Also i have yet to see a motherboard that can take and intel and an AMD. :P

AMD 64 socket is the way to go . Comparable to a Pentium 4 (beating it in some cases) and a lot cheaper. Check out the Newcastle chip for good performance vs price.

Yeh I agree, but is it only a matter of time before pentium bring out something to match/beat the 64's?

Default Amd All The Way

Think about it like this...


AMD XP2000+ =1.67Ghz
Intel P4 2Ghz =2.0Ghz


However, AMD's XP2000+ Outperformed Intel in every aspect
In the gaming Aspect AMD Surpassed the 2.0Ghz in running speeds.


It's just like a Centrino laptop is faster than a normal Desktop, better more advanced technology.

or for that matter any PC memory
