for petes sake
ITS NOT GOING TO BE USED FOR HARD CORE GAMING!
U ppl say go Intel when U Use intel for hard core gaming
Sure Intel is great but come on
Everyone KNOWS AMD has the better budget CPUs
Look have u seen that even though Intel have 65nm CPUs out
But it doesnt really mean that it uses less energy
heres some links u should look at fer a while
The price is set to $50-$75 and i DONT SEE ONE INTEL DUAL CORE EXCEPT A OPEN BOX PENT D
Here is the voltage on a few different CPUs both Intel and AMD
There is not much of a difference when it comes to power consumption.
And one last thing : here is something that AMD has that conserves Energy
CNQ: Cool'n'Quiet Technology
AMD's Cool'n'Quiet technology is an innovative solution available on AMD Athlon 64 processor-based systems that can effectively lower power consumption and enable a quieter-running system while delivering performance-on-demand.
It also has AMD POWER NOW
"In 2000, AMD introduced several energy-efficient solutions, including the AMD PowerNow!™ technology and the AMD-760™ microprocessor chipset."
Also its the good of competition that Intel CPUs are cheap so plz thank AMD
Sorry fer getting off topic
But Plz chose the best CPU for the needs u need it for.
