Hi all,

I want to ask you something. I'm going to buy a PC,I decide the others things but I don't know what I should do for PC? I interest in games,I like them. I play the games in a one day about 5-6 hours. The other thing I don't know about O/C so I don't do O/C..

Tell me this INTEL E6320 or AMD 5000+ which better for me and for future..

More about : intel e6320 amd 5000

x2 5000+ should be faster overall without overclocking.

When OC is considered, E6320 is much better.

i agree, if your not going to OC, then get the X2 5000.

by going with AMD you can get by using cheaper DDR2-800 memory, and you can get by with a cheaper motherboard. Every intel mobo at newegg that costs under $80 has an abysmal rating. Many AMD mobos at $50 get very good ratings. Use the money you save to buy a better video card or a more expensive (quieter) case, or even a game! Personally I'd go with a 65W AMD cpu like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If you don't OC, the best choice is the X2 5000+.

What about heat? Which is the best?

E6320 is cool. x2 5000+ is acceptable :wink:

The X2 5000+ might me a bit hotter on load but idles at lower temps and overall power consumption is more or less the same with the 5000+ performing better.

Core 2 Duo only requires DDR2-533. Are you saying the slower RAM will cost more?
June 9, 2007 8:58:53 PM

DDR2 533 cost as much as DDR 2 800 because 533 is outdated.

If you got the money, nobody with any sense denies that Intel beats AMD up pretty good in the midrange and above.

That being said, there are very few decent and cheap intel boards, while acceptable cheapo AM2 boards are all over the place.

This used to be more or less counteracted by the fact that AM2s need DDR800 while Intels were virtually as happy on DDR533.

With the HUGE drops in DDR2 prices, this no longer applies as the delta between DDR533 and DDR800 is like $10 a gig right now.

A x2 5000 (or 5400 if you can find one) + cheap Mobo + cheap DDR800 is a better deal than the Intel at the same selling point.

This is, of course at stock speeds. If you overclock, The Intels utterly humiliate the AM2s. You have to really wanna support AMD if you by an Athlon to overclock.

get the Intel system and a MB that will allow you to drop in a Quad Core when they get down to $150 next year. It is a much better upgrade path, considering AMD has yet to release a Quad and most likely won't release a desktop quad before X-mass, and then God only knows how much they will charge for it.

btw: OC the intel processor requires no brains or talent and this will make it much, much better than the AMD processor.

DDR2 is backwards compatible, so you can use your cheaper DDR2-800 for DDR2-533 operations without any problem, actually, underclocked it will work even more stable and will produce less heat than "original" DDR2-533...

Thanks for giving me that info... but i already knew that 2 years ago. The reason why 533mhz module is expensive because the new standard is 667mhz. Just like ddr 400mhz, it's very outdated and at least 2 times more expensive than ddr 677mhz. Which cost around 30$ per gb while ddr 400mhz cost 80$ per gb.

This is the another info about my system.. I have to buy two of them but which should I buy?

For AMD,

CPU: Amd Athlon64 AM2 5000+ (DC / Socket 940 / 1MB)

Motherboard : GF430MCP

RAM : 2GB DDR2 Ram 800MHz HyperX (Kingston)

For INTEL,

CPU : Intel Core2Duo E6320 (1.86DC / 1066MHz / 4Mb)

Motherboard : P965

RAM : 1GB DDR2 Ram 800MHz HyperX (Kingston)

Aside from performing better, the X2 5000+ system has 2G of RAM compared to 1G of the E6320; any doubts left :?: :!:
June 10, 2007 11:42:34 AM

to put it like that, the amd system is a much better choice at this price point and without overclocking, also, the extra ram will give you a much bigger performance gain over overclocking that intel so either way the amd one wins.
June 10, 2007 2:31:11 PM

For AMD the price is about 1.300 $ ... It is too high for me but for INTEL the price is about 950 $.. Damn it,too much.. I have to buy INTEL or reduce the AMD's RAM..

How it can be good for me?
June 10, 2007 10:01:55 PM

$950,.... and $1300 for those systems 8O 8O 8O ; are you buying these systems after they've toured the world twice?!!
