I am going to build a new computer, and I get the choice of lots of different processors, I am looking at either a:
AMD ATHLONâ„¢ 64 X2 6400+ (3.2GHz) 2 x 1MB L2 Cache (Socket AM2)
IntelÂ® Coreâ„¢2 Extreme QX6850 (4 X 3 GHz) 1333MHz FSB/8MB L2 Cache)
The first one being much cheaper, the second starting to really push my price barrier.
Would I be at a great disadvantage going for the AMD option? How do these 2 compare? Will the AMD be outdated too quickly? I am aiming to be running Crysis on highish settings and I am hoping for the nVidia 9000 series to come out before I buy this, will any better AMD’s come out at around that time? I dont know what to do!
