im about to build my 2nd (dedicated gaming) system and want your opinion on some things.
i know its going to be an AMD64 based system but not sure about the configuration.
at the moment im looking at
AMD Athlon 64 3800+ (S939, 2,4GHz, 512KB, Boxed)
AMD Athlon 64 4000+ (S939, 2,4 GHz, 1MB, Boxed)
except for the cache there the same (afaik) so is the extra 512Kb cache worth the extra â‚¬100?
and i also looked at the FX serie but those are at least â‚¬100 more expensive as the 4000+. is the performance of a FX that much better that its worth the extra â‚¬100 (on the already pretty pricy 4000+)
its between 2 boards;
Asus A8V-E Deluxe (Via chipset)
MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum (Nforce chipset)
main question, what is the difference between Via and Nforce chipsets which would you choose (please also tell why)
all the other things i already have or know what to use.
so tell me what you would choose and also importand why.
ThNx in advance
