Default 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?

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

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.

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.
