Recommended Posts

so uhm...I found 2 possible sets that I like, an amd set up, and an intel set up. the Intel one of course being more expensive.

or the http://www.newegg.com/product/Produc...82E16819115028 with the



and the ram i picked i think is compatible with both sets. so...the catch on the amd is only 1mb per core, and the Intel is 2mb per core, but the amd is 3.2 ghz where as the Intel is only 3.0 ghz...so which way do I go?

I would personally try to match the video cards, if you're SLI'ing them. But, unless you've already purchased one or both, try for a single 8800GT.


On the processor, go Intel. I don't want to sound like a fanboy, but at the moment, Anything Core 2 Duo kicks the pants off of an AMD of similar or even higher speed. (PS, your links don't work.)
