Why buy a Pentium 4 3.0ghz for 300 bucks when you can get a faster processor for the same amount which out performs it? X2 3800+ kills it. Opteron 170 OEM kills it.
1st. Well I'm not a dude who plays all the time. But I play games, sometimes many hours every day for a week, sometimes I'm a few weeks with playing only a few hours total. And well, aslong as my FPS is better than 60 I don't care. Sure it's nice to have 120+ FPS, but there really isn't a difference.
2nd, I don't know where u buy ur prices but u might look at some cheaper places. I'd suggest www.newegg.com
. There u can get p4 3 Ghz for under $200. And the price difference with a P4 3.0Ghz and an amd x2 3800+ is like $150. But yes, the x2 3800+ is better.
