First I want to say I have been an AMD fanboi for about 10 years now, but Intel is looking like it will be my next buy.
I cannot spend alot of money all at once maybe $250-300ish. I am looking to buy a new mobo, cpu, & ram.
AMD 3500+ (939)
Asus Mother Board
1GB DDR400 Ram
Here is what I want:
A new CPU with atleast the same power as the 3500
A new motherboard that will support newer chips so I can upgrade again in 1-2 years with a faster CPU
2GB Ram. Speed depends on what type of mobo I get and what my furture upgrade will need.
My main question:
AMD or Intel. It looks to me like Intel is the way to do now. I can get a P35 mobo with a E2140 chip, then in a year or so I could upgrade again to a Q6600 or something like that. Main problem I have is I do not want in one year to have to upgrade my Mother board and ram again because the whole chipset is out of date.
