That is sad! Really sad! I doubt you have many contributors.
If PP is allowed to use such a derogatory term towards a individual simply trying to render different viewpoints for the OP, who will stay besides him?
I've never been so bold as to outright state AMD is better, I explained that It would work for the OP and save him money, I cannot post links?!?
As a mod you should know that I cannot post links?
I pity this forum, you guys have a silly way of handling things.
I attacked only after being attacked, as was true on the last thread....
Good luck finding people that can tolerate this nonsense and contribute effectively.
I know your upset about this little powow but drop it already. :/
I like an amd, trotters likes him one and so do you.
But when it comes down to comparising on the internet or in your face and you can see which is better.
Its best to say intel has an edge, pp is right at times but amd is still strong in mny ways.
If you feel like you can't win a debate don't say anything if you can and walk away.
This is what you mentioned on comparison:
If you insist on getting a overpriced intel cpu, the one pp mcguire recommended is $200(OVERPRICED) and requires 85watts
You really should look into AM3+ cpus(fx series) and am3+ motherboard, they are better specs for less $.
The FX-6100 is ~$100 and would give six cores running at 3.3GHz.
The FX-8150 is a eight core with 3.6GHz and is ~$190-~$230.
With the i5 that pp recommended you would only get a quad core at 3.1GHz.
There are quad core 3.1GHz am3 cpus, they cost more due to how long ago they were last manufactured.
The 4GB 760 that pp recommended does not specify it's wattage, it uses a 6-pin and a 8-pin assuming they are standard 75W and 150W it may use up to 225W.
Those are the two highest wattage consumers for your system they would total up to 310 watts, giving you at least 290 watts for the less hungry components.
If you go with the PSU I mentioned at the top, you will be able to use non pure sine wave UPS's.
You lost that debate because a amd is not low watt chip, some are at 95 only or 95+ depending on the chip.
You read this and click tab specs it will give you a better clue of what your dealing with. :|
