Sorry for spamming the cpu forum with questions! Haha. As of now, I do not know how to overclock, but I want to in the future. I can not decide which cpu to go with. The E6600 Intel or the 6400+ Amd? I know the E6600 has been known to OC up to 3.2ghz, but the 6400 is already 3.2? I know that Amd and Intel are different, but is it better to OC the 6400? Also, I will have SLI 8800gt's, Zalman z9700 (or something like that) and a evga 680i board.
LOl get a new video card then I have a 5000+ Black Edition OC to 6400+ but I understand that you wouldn't like to buy the same CPU basically. I would go with the 6400 because I've seen some online for under 200$
Yes the overclocking is poor and is less powerfull than an Intel...but it means u'll save money both on a Highly overpriced Intel and a New motherboard
P.s I would high concetrate on Videocards when it comes to crysis because it barely made a difference with the Cpu change for me I had to overclock my Videocard to get "blazing" frames (cough* cough* 40-60) and thats running in SLI mode!
