After reading some benchmarks and reviews about the new Intel Core2Duo, they don’t seem to be the best buy anyhow :Z, especially with the low end ones with just 2MB L2…
As I want to build a HTPC for HD contents, I think I may be better off with AMD… The thing I can’t deny is the stability of Intel chipsets, they are the best.
Can anyone suggest some good chipsets/motherboards for socket AM2. The best ones would be with SPDIF ready, 2 optical would be best, wishing out loud. And the ability to use both onboard sound and add-on sound card at the same time, chipset dependant!!
Opinions are always welcome thanks
