Im look to run MANY ram intensive programs that utilizes hyperthreading. This is not for gaming. I want your opinion on which CPU can run the most ram intensive programs. Heres my setup for the AMD:

CPU-AMD Phenome 1100T BE X6. This is the best botting cpu by far for the price. 6 cores and overclocked to 4.2ghz=insane performance in multiple bots. $189.99

MB-I chose the MSI890FX. $150.00

PSU-Coolmaster Rs700 700W 69.99

RAM-Corsair Desktop memory kit 16 gigs $130

Hard Drive- Very basic just a 500gig this PC is only for botting $44.99

CPU cooler- Coolmaster hyper N520. $29.99

Case- Coolmaster HAF 922M. Really a superb case for the price. 3x200M fans for great airflow and preasure.$99.99

Graphics card-XFX HD-557. $69.99. Again just your basic card, rs doesnt require a great card.

Mouse and keyboard. $20 bucks.

Decent monitor. $89.99

I use windows 7 home prem. $100.00 (anyone know where I can get the free version lol)

All of this comes to a total of around $985 on Tigerdirect, with rebates it costs exactly $905.00.

This is the build for the Intel:( this was a suggestion)
i7-2600k
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
=$315 (also stable overclocked to 4.5ghz with hyper212+)

You need a good cooler to run a computer 24/7, the hyper 212+ runs better than ANY of the low end liquid cooled systems. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...$30

The cool master 922 HAF is good. =$90
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Memory, g.skill sniper is arguably the best cheap memory out right now. (2x8) 1333 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... =$98

You don't need a 700w power supply for that card, but you do need a good and RELIABLE power supply. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = 59$ it's cheaper, and more a overall better power supply than the coolmaster.

Mobo: Best future proof cheap mobo right now: has usb 3.0 (what ivy bridge/bulldozer will use) and runs duel cards at x8 if someone didn't want to just bot on their computer but also game they could run good video cards in sli/crossfire. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... = $ 125

500 gb hard drive is more than you need for botting, but you might as well because it's so cheap:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 50$

+ Windows+ video card+ keyboard mouse +monitor = $280

Total=$1047 and you get a much better computer


So what are your thoughts on which build can handle more ram intensive programs?

If you are doing Ram intensive programs why don't you up the Ram to 24 or 32 gb?

Because i'm not sure if thos CPU's can handle that much ram. Could they run 32 gigs of ram?

What programs exactly? Also, the highest RAM an AMD desktop motherboard can handle currently is 16GB, plus the version of Windows you selected will only accept 16GB of RAM.

A bunch of clients for botting on Runescape, each bot takes about 500mb so I was wondering what would be the best CPU

I think Home Premium is limited to 16GB max, Pro is limited to 192GB :p  However, boards have only 4 DIMM slots so going over 16GB will require 8GB modules which are crazy expensive ~500$ for 2x8GB therefore ~1000$ for the full 32GB ... at that point might as well build a 2nd PC to double the power.

for my experience any quad core CPU will get your job done just fine, and i still have the question what Applications will you be running, considering a 24 GB of Ram or 32 Gb so you need to have a workstation or server machine with at least a 12 core AMD Opteron CPU on it, and if you're running a lot of heavy applications you must upgrade to a SSD for faster load times and faster booting
AMD 1100T have some issues with certain MOBOs so you might go for 1090T

I cant afford that, And its not a normal application like windows Media player or something. Its an application used to running a "bot" for a game. Each client for the "bot" uses 500mb of ram, do you think I can run like 30+ with 16 gigs of ram?

no i don't think so, but you have a great option but will cost you, get a MOBO with LGA 1336 socket, DDR3 Triple Channel supporting 24 GB of RAM, you can get a 2 ×(3 × 4GB) DDR3 kit
September 10, 2011 1:37:06 AM

wait for sandybridge-e it supports quad channel memory or you could just go get a i7 950 and a socket 1366 board. that would support tripple channel memory.

Technically this thread is about illegal activities so is a matter of time before it is nuked. Why buy a $1k rig to bot rs when $1k can get your a rig to max crysis. You could just play a private server, some let you set your stats to OVER 9000!1!!11!

But on topic, rs takes very little so the extra threads on the i7 would help more than more cores on the phenom. You could even make due with the integrated graphics. Only changes I would say is 4x4gb kit is $90, get the haf 912, and earthwatts 650w. This is a much better quality psu and has enough power to sli/cf if you ever feel like playing a real game. 16gb ram will support 30+, when the ram fills it'll use virtual memory. Or just go with a 1366 build as suggested.

haha hey its not totally illegal =p. But thanks. But will a run out of CPU first if I use 16 gigs of ram? I will OC

As far as i know quad channel term means DIMM1,2,3,4 means a quad memory sticks in duel channel mode

I doubt it, the i7 has plenty of power.

So your saying that the i7 could use all 16 gigs of ram without using 100% cpu

There have been plenty of others come on this forum wanting to do the same exact thing you do. Unless you want to spend more money, the 2600k+16gb ram is the best you could do. Want to go higher, the next step up is the i7 970+24gb ram but this is quite the step up in price.

Once there, might be worth it to consider 2x i5-2500K with 16GB :p

You got me, 2 rigs is a step up from one. :p 

Unless you meant dual socket which SB doesn't support.

I really meant 2 distinct machines.
