Re: New Computer Advice Please!
Well its down to preferences really, it's that old AMD Vs. Intel question really.
As far as i can see, both chips and boards are on the same 'page' if you will. Both quads, both 8MB Caches. the only difference really is the clock speed, which would be less in reality than it is on the box, due to factors like Frontside bus speed/hypertransport modes.
