Re: Whats the best processor I can throw on my Mobo ?
Lets be honest, if AMD dies, then we'll get stuck paying 200$ for crap CPU's, and all you Intel groupies know it. Oh wait whats that, you already do pay 200$ for crap CPU's, other then the Q6600, every other CPU in that price range is over priced, and "performs" barely any better. By the way I m not a fan of AMD Quads either, seeing how awful they are at the moment. Besides lets look at AMD shall we, they have 2.5ghz dual core selling for 60$. While Intel has the E7200 (which is a good CPU) but at 132$. The prices are falling and being slashed, yet Intel stays like a rock, and decides to keep their prices there. Its one of the reasons I think whoever mentioned the Tricores being a good thing was right. Because the Tricores will basically be the only chips people will be able to afford.
