Re: Need help with AMD CPU selection.
What is your budget?
Understand that the AMD Athlon X2's are the Dual-Core chips out for AMD and are the best they currently offer for gaming. But Intel Core 2 Duo chips are the best gaming chips right now but until the price cuts in April they are easy beat in Price/Performance unless you heavely OC a C2D to 3.0ghz which is easily possible.
Don't just limit yourself to AMD if you want the best Gaming chip or have a nice chunk of change. AMD is not king right now, Intel is.
