Default Hello

My name is Matt I started getting into building my own computers about 6 months ago thought i'd join a forum to help with that in the future the last build I did was an AMD Socket 754 Athlon 64 with out any prior knowledge of what was current after research I saw that the build was well behind it's time so now I'm building an updated comp. and will probably ask for help here in the near future
Matt

I built my first computer back in march now i want to upgrade it into an SLI compatible board along with a Dual Core Processor. But am having trouble with choosing seeing that LGA775 boards are more $ than AM2 Boards with SLI but the Intel CPUs are faster than the AMD CPUs (correct) but the AMD CPUs Are Cheaper. I was looking at this on Newegg MSI K9N4 SLI-F Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 500 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard $84.99 with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Windsor 2.2GHz AM2 Processor $97.99 compared to this on Newegg ECS NF650iSLIT-A (V1.0) LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard $109.99 with an Intel Pentium D 935 Presler 3.2GHz LGA 775 Processor $103.00

Yeah. Intel is faster (right now), but AMD has the price/performance.

I am an AMD guy myself, so I'm not really in a good position to give advice on it. I do know AMD's next gen comes out around Q3 (AM2+, quads).

If you have the dough, going for the fastest will work. If you can't afford it, go with AMD. Either way, it will be outdated in a few months LOL.
