Ok Here's the deal
 
I have another 3 grand (cad) and will be spending it on upgrading or buying an entirely new pc i was thinking since everyone think intel is the best that i should just go and buy a 3 grand intel core 2 and keep the other athlon one in my sig for friendz when they come over or i could maybe upgrade the computer in my sig to something crazy what do you guys think?

Core 2 Duo.

I say go for a Core 2 Duo. $3,000 CAD will get you a very kickass machine.

keyser09 11-24-2006 07:33 PM

ok ill jus wait to see if anyone else has ideas (i dont really know still a 6 grand amd machine will be super cool to brag with lol)

Ronnie 11-24-2006 07:36 PM

o come on guyz get over it an intel machine isnt that fast...with a 6k amd i could get like 8 gigs of ram or maybe quad my 7950s

People will laugh at you for spending $6000 on an AMD build.

But if you're really interested in throwing away your money, wait for AMD's 4x4 that should come out this month. That'll give you plenty of ways to burn away those $$$s.

be honest the amds quad core will kill the core 2 duo am i right?

With the $3,000, you can get a nice Core 2 Duo with 2GB of RAM and a 8800GTX, and would absolutely crush your current machine.
