Ok which would be best for gaming not iuncluding overclocking just normal gaming
i vote c2d since it will run cooler
you do know that neither cpu runs at 4.8 or 5.2 right?
core 2, in a custom p.c. (u.k. mag) test in the most cpu intensive game they tested (medieval 2) the athlon fx62 was the only one that could keep up with a 6300, as for a 6600? it's obvious
Core 2 hands down. It takes an Athlon X2 3GHZ+ to attempt to reach the 6600's benchmarks at stock speed.
Core 2 is the top gaming chip currently.. AMD will probably release a new chip sometime in the near future that will beat it though.
I have an E6600....and it took me all of a day to learn how to OC. So the Core 2 Duo stock....and then the Core 2 Duo OC to 3.2 or 3.4 or higher depending on your cooling...
The AMD 5200 would have to be like 200$ cheaper for me to consider buying it over any C2D
Sorry, but had to vote for the C2D, It blows my old AMD system out of the water.
Yeah, which is why I bought the Brisbane and OCed it. A mobo, CPU, and ram for cheaper than just the E6600 chip.
Who voted for AMD?
The E6600 will kill it.
But then again the 5200 goes for $220 around here in the US and the E6600 goes for $322.
Def. a decent price damage.
But E6600 hands down
the price different is so big???
vote goes for amd altought i already voted intel
Can't argue with the evidence, providing you can afford it!!
