Default Gaming Proc Choice??

Hello I was just wondering whats overall a better Gaming Proc. The AMD 64 BIT CPUS, or the newer p4s, like the 3.0 and the 3.2 ghz. And for the 64 BIT cpus, im looking at either the 3000+ at the cheapest, or the 3200+ or if i can srounge the money the 3500+. I was told that overall AMD is MUCH better for gaming preformance wise, frams per second, etc. And why are the AMD 64 bits cpus so much more expensive than the 3.0 and 3.2 ghs P4?? Last time i checked, the LGA 775 p4 went for like around 200 or something , where as the 64 BIT AMD goes for like 250 and some of them even 400 and 500 $$. And one more thing, how are PSUs that come with a case?? Are they stable?? Ive heard from many people that if you get a good case with lets say a 450 Watt PSU or 500 watt PSU, that they have no problems with it. Other people say replace it, because it is cheap, and buy something a little bit more expensive , but will hold up for a long time. Any help would be FANTASTIC, Thanks again!!


Steve

AVOID THE P4. It will perform sub-par in your games. I mean, exgamer come on.. he's asking about a gaming CPU. We know AMD and Intel pretty much run neck-to-neck in multitasking.. but AMD really wins big time in gaming.

"And why are the AMD 64 bits cpus so much more expensive than the 3.0 and 3.2 ghs P4??"

They aren't. I don't know where you are checking but where I get my products from they are in fact cheaper. It seems you are buying from a place that is overpriced big time. AMD is very fast, runs cooler, and puts the P4 out of its misery in games.

hehe, ive heard different things, people have said that AMD benchmark wise and fps wise is higher in the newer games, to be honest with ya, i wouldnt know. I use an AMD , and its holding out great for me, and it runs most of the newer games pretty playable, at 1.8 ghz. Lol, Can anyone tell me what year the Athlon xp 2000+ was released? I think this proc goes back to like 2002 or something.

I perfer AMD. I consider AMD more elite then intel. Intel is good for office work. I personnaly think its just personnel opionion. I doubt their much diff. But I like AMD. So I stick AMD. I'm getting a AMD 3000 which will clock out at about 2.2ghz.

You people are retarded. Intel is obviously the best. The best in gaming, multitasking, the whole works, I think everybody is being paranoid because they see that everybody else has AMD but the truth is AMD is crap, only FX-55 is good.












But....I like AMD better
