Default Which Dual Core?

I've heard that AMD is generally better than Intel for gaming, but is that true with the dual core processors too? Which is better?

AMD is currently better but with in 6 months it would look like Intel will be making better processors again. Dual Core is also better for gaming.

If you have the money you can go for the Intel Conroe which is coming out soon, better then the current AMDs, but I'm sure AMD will come back at them. Dual Core is not necessarily better for gaming because currently games do not use both cores, but in the future they will.

Hmm...3-4 months is a long time to wait, especially since my current system sucks ***. Can't even play CSS lol. Gonna go AMD dualcore, unless you all think the Conroe is worth that kinda wait with no gameplaying. And if I do wait, I hope the conroe isn't all hype....

Instead of having "a bad feeling," why don't you guys go out and do some research? AMD's got NOTHING up it's sleeve until late 2007. Like Anand said, "2006 is painted Blue." K8L isn't coming out until the end of 2007, and I'm not sure if a architectural upgrade will be enough to take on Conroe's whole new architecture.

Like Tyler said up there, its Intel time.
