Ok so I'm at the point of upgrading to a newer CPU and Motherboard and I need some direction. Intel seem to be offering some processors with tasty clockspeeds which are similair prices to some of the Athlon 64 range. Do these Athlons handle 32 bit applications better than a dedicated 32-bit Intel? I have £300 - £350 to spend on both a CPU and Motherboard. I do kind of fancy the 3200 or 3400+, but I want to hear a good arguement to make me consider going Intel, just to help me in weighing up my options. In terms of motherboard I dont know whether to go with a socket 939 or 754? I have been reading about various motherboards and the following seem to be popular: 'MSI K8T Neo 2', 'ASUS A8V Deluxe' and 'ASUS SK8V'. What do you think I should go for?
