I've stuck with Intel for a long time but the price of the I5 and I7 is so much compared to AMD.

Some game will benefit from the high speed dual core. other's benefit from having 3 or more cores. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/83?vs=120 Personally I'd stick with going with something like the Phenom II x3 if you're gaming and overclock when needed. There nice cpus on that front. Although only issue with that is, Phenom II x3's on newegg are OEM at the moment. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... | Report abuse unknown_13 CPUs Expert August 7, 2010 12:05:45 PM Well, it's good for now, but... i would get the Athlon II X3 445... great little budget gaming CPU. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>AMD Dual Core Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition, gaming?> Related ressources: ForumAMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition no broken cores ForumBest Gaming CPU: Athlon II X3 440 or Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition ForumAMD Phenom II X2 555 vs X3 740 Black Editions ForumAthlon II X4 630 or Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition ?
