Thanks for the vote of confidence there, chief. I was only trying to say I want an upper-end processor like a Pentium 3.0 or so.. I gather that the general concensus is go with AMD for gaming.. and I am fine with that. I'm just trying to say I want a FAST AMD.

I will stick with my Laptop for Office apps, etc...

To let you know, AMD's naming method, like 3200+. 3500+, 3700+, tells you what it is equal to in the intel world. The 3700+ is equal to a 3.7GHz intel, while it only operates at 2.2GHz. The 3700+ San Diego is a VERY good CPU, trust me, I have one

so, umm, err yeah

by the way, why dont you just get a new laptop for all your needs. I have an emachines 64 Athlon 3000+ ; one of the 1st ones to have the 64 processors and its actually faster than my friends alienware. look into the newer laptops, they r great for gaming.

laptops for gaming are usually heavy, will give u 3rd degree burns, and need to constantly stay plugged in. kinda takes away the mobile part of it


-AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Winchestor
-MSI K8N Neo4-F
-Sapphire Radeon X850 XT
