  1. Before I go spend a bunch of money on a CPU I wanted to get some opinions from people who have used them.

    Is the Intel Core 2 Duo Really Better than the AMD dual core?

    Obviously the AMD is much cheaper, But is the Intel really worth paying extra for? are the AMD as stable as the Intel? I am buying a new CPU for my gaming pc and I dont wanna spend $1000 on an intel CPU if I could get equal performance from something cheaper. I know its been pretty close, But I read somewhere that the Intel core 2, Right now anyways, Is in the lead. Is this true? Also I heard there arent alot of games or appz supporting dual core CPUs yet, Is it even worth upgrading now or should I wait till the technology becomes more mainstream..

    Thanks.

    both are very good cpus, both are stable. Intel is better in terms of performance and speed, most won't notice it though and AMDs are priced to give a better value. Go to tomshardware website and read the tests and reviews.

    The best: Intel
    What I have: AMD

    Price/Performance ratio that meets your budget.

    Budget is always an issue. I just buy the best product at time of purchase. And the c2duo line is pretty sweet.
