What is a better proc for gaming? The AMD FX 55 or P4 3.4 EE w/ 2 meg Cache? I was just curious, because ive heard many people argue that the fx 55 would own the 3.4 in gaming apps. Me personally, would go with the FX 55, because I have seen both procs in action and ive seen many benchmarks where the FX 55 averages higher than the 3.4 in HL2 and Doom 3! Both Procs are going for about 1 grand on newegg, fx 55 $995 I belive and 3.4 $1125. You see, I go to a really cool lan center in Londonderry, New Hampshire called Area 51, and I personally know two guys, one has the FX 55 and the other 3.4 EE. And the dude with the 55 ( Mike ) argues that his proc runs over ( Brians ) proc the 3.4 . Anyway, Im going but if anyone lives in the New Hampshire area, deffinatly stop by Area 51. They have 20 PCs, soon upgrading to 35,
a DETICATED T1 line, and a bunch of other cool stuff. OMG their t1 absolutly flys i love it.
