Which of the intel core2duo's compare with the Fx-60?
Looking at the 7900GTX, I'm assuming this PC is mainly for gaming. In that case, he shouldn't even really need a new processor. Sure, some (most) of the Core 2 Duos are better, but it's not as if AMDs suck just because Intel is on top. Some people are still getting a good gaming experience from P4s. The main reason the FX-60 isn't recommended now is because it costs way more than Intel's competitors. And second of all, games aren't usually processor-limited, unless it's multi-threaded and you're stuck with a single core. I honestly don't see upgrading to C2D as a worthy investment coming from an FX-60. But I know from experience that the motherboard and RAM are good. Plus a 10k hard drive must be really nice.CompMan said:Well, this is why I'm asking this question,
My friend has a AMD-fx60, Asus A8n32-SLI, 7900GTX, 74 gig raptor, two gigs of Corsair XMS memory..he wants to upgrade to an Intel because he isn't really that happy w. his setup.
I was like its not a good time to upgrade wait for more DX10 cards to come out, but as far as processors go what do you think will make him happy?
