Hi guys,

I'm thinking about buying a new computer and I want to know which brand is better to go with.

I want to use the computer for playing the lastest games.

What do you guys think? :thumbsup:

AMD is like the best for gaming. Unfortunately, with Intel's new Conroe microarchitecture, AMD has been shown the way to the crapper. But that doesn't necessarily mean that AMD won't come up with a counter-attack, which it has. Truthfully, I would say wait out for a few more months and read all the benchmarks, then make your decision. Why? Because, it's just like when the MHz wars were going in the '90's. They came up with this, so we should come up with this. IMO, wait till the dust settles a bit.

I agree AMDs are the best choice for games. I am currently using an Atlon 64 dual core 4800+ and it wrks so much better thn the P4.

AMD is the best when it comes to processors today. [H] AMD Athlon 64 X2 Preview Check that site out for more details. Which company are you going to buy your computer from?

Well last year I put in a AMD 3200 64 bit(was big for then still is really) and it works great over all the p4's I have used. They say when you click on something "Oh you want me to open that" lol and AMD says Bam and its there.

I like AMD it seems to be a good chip maker. They have higher benchmarks.

I've always liked AMD better (those stupid "disco"commericals for intel annoyed the heck out of me)
and something to read

Even though Intel will offer the new Core 2 very soon AMD probably has something waiting in the wings to be released. AMD almost always hits them hard with their own version of the new technology. I.e. Dual core 64 bit technology.

AMD is better this month Intel is better the next month. Don't do any decisions until the end of July at the earliest.

I doubt AMD has anything up its sleeve capable of catching up with Core 2 coming out this year.

AMD does have a secret wepon up it's sleeves, but most definitely it, will not match the prowess of the Core 2 Duo. I am not one to take sides in computer hardware, but AMD has been pulling through.

The rate at which CPU's are being developed is just staggering. I read that in 2007 or 2008, the AMD processors may have four cores and a alot more.

AMDs are better quality then Intells. I think that AMD does have a trick up its sleeve. Personally I think Intells are overrated. The new Core 2 Duo is nice though but AMD will make a better one lol.

Just my thoughts

Exactly, take a look at the way Intel and AMD handled Dual Core technology. AMD integrated the cores into one chip, Intel essentially "glued" two cores together. This shows, in my opinion, that AMD has a very good R&D dept.
