I have been trying to decide which CPU I should keep either a PIIx2 550BE or Athlonx3 425 for my back-up system. So I ran a bunch of game benchmarks to help me decide. I am leaning towards the Athlon based on the results. I like the idea of an extra core over the cache cause I think more games are going to be using more cores. The test system is rig 2 in my system spec and the resolution is 2048x1152. Each benchmark is at its max with 4xAA. I also threw in benchmarks from rig 1 in my system spec as well. What do you think?
