What are you talking about, AMD x2 "can" kill a c2duo in gaming.

look at the charts in the middle of the page.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Black Edition Processor ADX6400CZWOF - 3.20GHz, 2MB Cache, 1000MHz (2000 MTs) FSB, Windsor, Dual-Core, Retail, Socket AM2 (940), Processor - No Fan at TigerDirect.com

the 3.2ghz is priced $55 less than the 2.4ghz c2duo anyways. Although the AMD benchies may be a little biased, still they do have "potential" to beat C2duo's, and people don't seem to realize that.

I think this newegg customer puts it best, what I'm trying to say, "I think its quite funny those who say .... my OC'd intell will out perform this. Ok lets see ... you HAD to OC to match performance?? How does it do stock vs stock considering price is what I want to see?"
