Don't hate. I just bought myself the X2 5200+ With 2 megs of L2 Cache. Lets see how it fairs for say... around $100.00. Can any Intel Proc match that at that price?

So I'm thinking I will get this graphics card, and SLI it once it starts to show its age. Will that allow me to play games like Crysis at good settings without a framerate problem (not maxed out, just good)?

Thanks! I know I'm asking a lot of question...

Or.. you could get this guy.

Rather than SLI just do Crossfire (If you get a MoBo that supports it.) As the 2600XT will probably outperform your 8600's at the same price range. (Double ram, much higher processor speed.)

I did some research, and found out that ATI cards don't do AA of AF well at all, thus making them inferior. Thanks for the suggestion though!!!

Seriously just by looking at the prices any dumb person could tell that C2D is way better.

We were having a bit of an argument over intel/amd at work today during a slow time. My manager said that AMD has always been better and will be even batter when the AMD quad core comes out... I told him that right now Intel is in the lead, another guy was along with me saying Intel was out ahead atm. Kinda interesting anyway that something like that pops up during a downtime working at a fast food restaurant.

Anyway, right now I would go with Intel. You said you were on a budget though, so it might be a wiser chose to go AMD and save yourself a bit of money. Someone else may have better advise though as the only 3 AMDs I've owned is an AMD K6, Duron 900MHz, and an Athlon XP 2GHz. None of which were my main PC. Still got the Duron, but the mobo for it died 1 day after I got it (got it free used). So, not much experience w/ AMD here...
