Hello Everybody!
i have so toughts about those two CPU's.

i'm building a new PC and almost finished!
this PC will be a ''gamer'' one.

so what CPU is better for gameing? the AMD Athlon X3 445 or the Core 2 Duo E8400?

and what Motherboard do you suggest for those two CPU's.

*for the E8400 i have 2 Motherboard's First is: P5G41C-M LX (yeah an old one) the second is: ASUS P5Q Pro.
i know that the ASUS P5Q Pro is much better than the other one, but just saying..

for the AMD i have no Motherboard so i really want the Intel One.

Please help me decide :) 

*if your asking, i have GTX260 OC one. and i'll have soon enough 5850 (getting for free so dont mind LOL)

Seeing as you already have the board, stay with the 8400. It will be cheaper. You could try trading the P5Q for an AM2+/AM3 board. The x3 is the better gaming CPU I think.
