first off im not trying to start any seriouse arguments or anything because i know some people are firm believers in the brand they like.
so im going to be building my first computer soon and i need some help. it will be mostly used for light gaming(counter-strike 1.6 & call of duty) but id also like it to perform ok in the future with better games(counter-strike source & call of duty 2.) it will also be used for internet browsing and listening to music and watching movies. i have heard that AMD's are better for gaming even though they are not as high of ghz. true? so ive been looking at mb's and components for each kind of processor and this is what i came up with.
If i got Intel:
Processor-Intel Pentium D 930(3.0ghz, 800 fsb)Pentium D
If i go AMD:
Processor:Athlon 64 4000+(2.4ghz, 1gh fsb(im guessing this is why they are supposed to be soo much better than the Intels?) AMD
Motherboard-Gigabyte GA-K8N Promotherboard
either way im probably going to overclock them.
Things im gonna get either way i go:
harddrive-probably gonna stick with the one from my current computer(not sure what kind but its 74 gigs)
CD-RW-from old computer
RAM-not sure gonna need some help
Floppy-from old computer
Case/powersupply-Aspire X- dreamercase
Graphics card:XFX Geforce 6800XT
thanks in advance for the help
