the athlon 3200 is a lot better for gaming rather than an intel. an athlon 64 3200's clock speed is 2.0 GHz. although it's equivalent to an intel pentium 4 at 3.2 GHz. Intel's are a little better for media and stuff like that, but I would go with the 3200. it will suit you fine. what are the rest of your specs?

I don't get you Acottenham. You say Joepic helped you. All well and good, but complain that no one helped you, when hes the only one who replied before you kicked off on one.

I'm sorry that you sometimes don't get the response your looking for on every post you type, but people here do try to help.
Plus, would you please edit posts, instead of posting another below please? I don't have respect for people that are like your being I'm afraid.

If you are going to be a part of this forum, you'll have to act like a part.

Anyway, the 3200+ is good. I have a 3500+ and it hasn't put me wrong. I do less gaming though, and more editing, but my brother games, and he paid for it, so I had to choose accordingly.

As for the onboard chip, its no good, and won't play much if any new games what so ever until you can upgrade. That said though, if your not going to game much, go for a Pentium 4, though they run hot.

atholon 3200+

it's a processor, it does a job...
it does it well, and to all accounts reliably. perhaps if you had asked a proper question.
ilke what mainboard processor is best..
but saying I have this board, and am gettnig this processor, well sounds like you already made your mind up...


as joepic said, athlons give you more bang per buck... the 3200+ is a chip that is based on the speeds of a 3.2GHz pentium, (the whole athlon xxx+ range does this)...

want better advice? ask a question that people can respond to.
perhaps people talked about 'other shit' because you question wasn't something the felt they could answer fully, perhaps they didn't understand what you wanted.

perhaps if you had actualy asked a question people would have responded...

anyway...

Dude, what in the world are you talking about? Flame us then award us?

Anywho...since I pity you I guess I'll make a recommendation.


I recommend the AMD Athlon 3500+, rather then the 3200+. You'll get a faster processor, but not for to much more. If you want an Athlon, get the 3500+. or if you want a better version of the Athlon, get the Opteron 144 Venus. You won't be disappointed.
