Default can i get a recommendation for MB and CPU

lots of people seem to like athlon here. which processors are better for multi tasking.

i need a dual core processor around 3.0 MHz, and it would be nice if the motherboard could use ddr2 ram... well unless people think ddr2 isnt going to have any advantage

i heard somethin about the new condor chip, and the am2, im still not sure exactly what the am2 is. is it the part that holds the chip? i dont think these two are compatible though

im not gaming so i dont need any special video or audio capabilities.

i would like to spend less than 300 for the chip and mother board but i can save up more if its necessary.

lol condor.


I suggest saving up for a nice 975X Chipset motherboard when some good ones come out and a Conroe


They are extremly fast and they support DDR2 memory just like you wanted


They wont be around 3.0 MHz unless you OC it, but trust me the Clock speed isnt evreything

Im 99.9 % positive that evreyone here on TF agrees with me

here i was thinking that they started at 1.86ghz . i agree, although i would wait for cheaper chipsets to be released when they release conroe rather than buying an expensive 975x now.

wait for Conroe, or right now get an AM2 if u want. for dual core, get the X2 clearly, but if u want reg AMD get an Opteron.
