hey just have a question. Would an AMD Athlon 64 3200+ (socket 939) combined with 2 gigs of RAM and X850XT Platinum be enought for the newest games on higher settings? or is it worth the investment in a a 3500+?

Thats good enough... definintly good enough.

If your spending that much money though, I guess you might as well go up to 3500+.

I believe the 3500+ is the most overclockable, even more than the 3200+
they tested the 3200+ and 3500+ with G.Skill RAM, and the 3500 allowed them to go further

amd are all right dude but they suck i ahve a pentium 4 3.6hgs 128mb g card 3 gig ram so u all suck
these are the words of an Intel fanboy

I don't dislike the 3.6GHZ P4, but it is definately overrated. you will see far better price vs performance in a 3500+ or 3200+
and like said many times, Athlon's can do more per clock cycle, so a 2.6GHZ Athlon can often beat a 3.6GHZ P4


has anyone seen Intel's 600 series CPU's?
they've made 2 new EE's, one is at 3.73GHZ. I laughed when I saw the benchmarks though, they got outperformed by the previous 3.4 EE's and sometimes by the 3.2 non-EE

i dont like intel, amd iz much btr. first intel has a huge price increase in a small improvent and second, they live shorter when overclocked. AMD barely have a price increase and they live longer. but they do create more heat. AMD IZ DA WAY 2 GO!!!!!!!

can't people just see that intel and amd are good fro different things?? amd is great for gaming, but intel is better for apps (image/sound editing, development, etc)
