AMD or INTEL with Radeon Cards?
Aug 1, 2009, 9:34 PM
If im getting a Radeon ATI Graphics card, is it better to stick with a AMD CPU rather than a INTEL CPU? Does AMD with ATI Cards give better performance?

Depends on which CPUs you're talking about. But as a straight up difference, there is none, and if there is, it's minimal at best.

makes no difference, get the best CPU you can afford (assuming your mobo is compatible)
May i ask, what would that be for $170?
