Default Re: Core 2 Duo VS. AMD? Really?

And arent the sockets still the same, like LGA775 or something? I've got a prescott and it goes in that socket but i dont think my mobo can take ddr2? :s

well core2 duo is compatible with ddr as well. yes the core2 duo is LGA775, but i would upgrade 2 a new motherboard anyways just 2 be sure you have ddr2 and compatibility with core 2 duo.

i am sure AMD is working on something, but intel is also already working on their sucessor to core 2 duo to keep the new technology going, i would go with core 2 duo personally, and i am going 2 after vista comes out

Yeah, Conroe owns all. Also, they overclock extremely well, so you can get the entry-level Conroe and probably beat almost anything from AMD.

I used to promote AMD, but, well, Intel simply blew away the competition.

No offense, but it seems you've been brainwashed with something called the "AMD Fanboy Syndrome."

Yes, that is true. The Core 2 Duo E6600 costs $316 MSRP and it performs just as well, if not better than the Athlon 64 FX-62.
