Default Re: New Computer

I always go with NVidia because it benchmarks better with intensive games than ATI.

Unless the Nivida card people have purposely told the programmers to make a game run faster on their chips which would be wrong, the difference should be minimal at best.

mine goes over 1000mhz no prob, i think ive had it over 1100...anyways i would get an am2 socket and a dual core cpu instead of that amd 4000+, single core cpus will become obsolete pretty soon so spending all that money on that cpu is pointless, also intel is coming out with their new conroe cpu which beats all of amds cpus at the moment so maybe u should look into that before u go out and buy an amd cpu
