Theres really no sense argueing with him if he is going to be dumb and build this so awesome 6grand amd build let him do it. He will realize eventually that he made a mistake.

Am I biased? H3ll yeah. I'm biased towards whatever performs the best. If I'm a die-hard Intel fan, then why did I build an AMD computer about a year ago? Its because back then, AMD was he best performer.

There is no good to 4x4, it's AMD's half-a$$ed way of trying to put up competition to Intel's Quad Core because AMD won't bring out their Quad Cores for another 10 months (Q3 2007).

You'd do best to buy the parts you'd need to make your current setup a C2D (CPU, mobo). Drop in a 8800GTX, and you're set. Then turn around and sell the stuff you just swapped out (CPU, mobo, video card).

Having the latest and greatest hardware doesn't mean squat if it isn't setup right.

Blowing another $3K on your current build would be... how can I put this...NOT SMART. I'm die hard AMD, but Intel is the clear winner for now.

Not to beat a dead horse, but keep in mind that K8L processors are designed to compete with, not beat, the Core 2 Duo.
