I must buy my parts this week so I could realy use your help guys!!!

Bare with me... I have been a big Fan of AMD but I want to know should I with intel on this build.

If I was to build a AMD AM2 system it would be...

*AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Windsor 2.8GHz Socket AM2
*ASUS M2N32-SLI DeluxeSocket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI
*Patriot eXtreme Performance 4GB(2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2
*EVGA 8800GTS 320MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Video Card
*Thermaltake W0106RU 700W Power Supply
*LIAN LI PC-7B plus II Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

OR

If I was to build a Intel 775 system it would be...

Everything the same but
* ASUS P5N32-E SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI Motherboard
*Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz LGA 775

What do you guys think? I have been readind up on banchmarks and I see that intel takes the win on most. Yes I know its a couple of frames here or there or a Min. less on something. But I like that the Intel can OverClock like a motha and the AMD 5600 can only be pushed to around 3-3.1 GHz.

I am a gamer but also an Editor Working with Avid and After Effects. What do you guys think about this set up and RAM.
Thank you so much!!!

and if you asking why I need it this week its couse I have projects to edit.

I love my PC-7B, it's an awesome case.

You should go for the Intel build, better performance. You can oc the E6600 much higher then the 5200+ as well.

Get this psu, more power then the Thermaltake psu for the same price.

i think u shud go for an intel rig if u really look for better performance...c2d6600 is a very good overclocker as well...as u say u r a fan of AMD but currently i think most ppl wud suggest intel coz of sheer performance of c2ds...

At stock clocks C2D and Athlon x2 can compete... The Athlon will usually fall behind, but they still compete... the sheer overclockability of the C2Ds allow for them to pull ahead FTW in almost, if not all, cases.... The e6600 will outperform the 5200+ at stocks and the 6000+ will give the e6600 a run for its money.. but then the overclock of the e6600 will allow it to pull ahead

the 6600 is just higher a bit than the 5600+ if you don't like to overclock,but the 5600+ and the mainboard should be more cheap,so i think it is a good idea to taking 5600+

I think you will be much happier with the Intel system, similar performance at stock speeds runs cooler and will overclock well past the AMD.

why would u want to try to get a mad chip to 3.1 - its going to be tough - when your mom can clock a C2D to 3.4ghz?

i build a x6800 system (prices are way done used $450-550) - 3.8ghz np

If this is a business expense and you can write it off at the end of the year, AND your work depends on processor speeds. . . the smart choice would be a quad. If you can't pawn the bill onto uncle sam, get the C2D. "Overclocks like a motha" is an understatement

Please list the memory speed you are buying.
DDR2 ???
Just want to make sure you are getting the right kind.

Did you type your response on a cell phone? If not, that's just sad... very sad.

I'm no fan of intel, but I have to say I'm happy with my e6600, and yes it is better then the 5600+

The Ram Is DDR2 800


Thank you guys for all your help. Intel it is on this build. But I will go back to AMD

The X2 6000+ is roughly the same performance as the E6600, so the Intel build you suggested would be stronger than the X2 5600+ by a little. The higher-clocked X2s are not known for being excellent overclockers, like you have mentioned. The E6600 should overclock to well over the 3.1-ish limit of the X2s, even though it has 400 MHz less clock speed to start out with than the 5600+.

If you want to run SLi, then I would suggest the 680i LT chipset instead of the 680i as 680i boards are more expensive but the 680i LT is still two x16 lanes instead of two x8 for the 650i SLi. The LT is on average about $30 less than the standard 680i, with 680i LT boards being $165-190 and 680i ones being $210+.If you never want to think about running in SLi mode, then the 650i Ultra or P965 should be the chipsets on your board of choice.

The RAM sounds good, although DDR2-533 would suffice due to the 1066 MHz FSB of the CPU. The extra bandwidth goes largely unused, but if it's no more expensive to get 800 than 667 or 533, why not?

Go with the intel choices, I'm going with the same board/cpu for my next build.
May 2, 2007 4:27:23 AM

I see what you are saying thanx. I am going with the DDR 800 because I will be going back to AMD. Can you explane to me something I know the Intell uses a bus speed of 1066. dose tht effect it in a bad way. Or is it made to use that speed well. Like am i lossing any performace over what AMD would give me?

No, the 1066 MHz FSB is plenty fast to keep the Core 2 Duo fed. The Core 2 Duo E4300/E4400 use an 800 MHz FSB and this does not seem to affect their performance much, either. The Core 2 architecture is pretty efficient and doesn't suck a whole lot of bandwidth through the FSB like the Pentium 4/Ds did.

Everyone thank you for your help Intel it is for this build. Ill let you guys know how it goes.
