  1. So who is going to get the new intel Core 2 Duo? It comes out on the 24th i hear. What do you guys feel about AMD now that intel is on top again?

    AHhh now I just feel stupid. I will still give my opinion, however. Intel is very appealing now...when directx 10 comes out, I am going to build an intel machine. For now, I am sticking with AMD cause I had a 3000+ and it broke, so I sent it in to them and they gave me back a 3500+. That's sweet.

    I'll wait for at least a couple of months before I decide which way to go - Core 2 Duo, Woodcrest or Opteron.

    I'm waiting. I may upgrade one PC to a new really cheap x2 AMD and then a Conroe for my game PC.

    the recent news of AMD acquiring ATI may change things a bit ;)

    the reason being... if AMD cannot make a faster processor [yet], they can still create a faster platform:
    this was supposed to happen anyways, but now that ATI will most likely become part of AMD, I see this happening alot sooner :D

    cheers :wave:
