  1. Well I guess the title sums it up!My local store is offering 2 systems for the same price.
    AMD Athlon 64x2 4600 Dual core
    Pentium D 950 3.4 ghz
    What in your learned opinion would be the best choice from a strictly gaming perspective?

    The AMD machine, and of course, like Mirob said, with a good video card.

    Amd is generally better for games. The Core 2 Duo is more powerful, but look at the benchmarks online.
