I heard before AMD is better on gaming, but is that still the same or is the p4 (800 Mhz fsb) better?

My system: AMD Athlon XP 3000+ / TwinMOS 1Gb DDR400 / Soltek 75FRN-RL / Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro / Antec True Power 550W / Western Digital Raptor / Hercules GTXP SC / Samsung DVD / Lite-On CDRW Related resources P4 @ 800mhz vs .

Get the answer Mephistopheles June 18, 2003 3:06:49 AM baaad question indeed :smile: . But I'd have to say that the 800Mhz FSB models are the appropriate choice right now. They also have the added bonus of HT (aside from the pathetically high memory bandwidth). Ganache June 18, 2003 3:33:05 AM Right now i would go with a p4 800Mhz, but make sure you buy a good motherboard. HardWareBoss June 18, 2003 3:58:29 AM Lets not forget the 2.4c. One heck of an over clocker. sabbath1 June 18, 2003 10:22:44 AM Sure, another excellent choice. My system: AMD Athlon XP 3000+ / TwinMOS 1Gb DDR400 / Soltek 75FRN-RL / Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro / Antec True Power 550W / Western Digital Raptor / Hercules GTXP SC / Samsung DVD / Lite-On CDRW shadus June 18, 2003 11:58:43 AM On the low end of the market or the non-overclocking market, i'd say you were best with amd. If you are going top end of the market (say over 2400mhz/prr then probally intel is the better choice. Power for dollar it's tough to beat the AXP 1700+ & nforce2 board... especially with a bit of overclockin love. Shadus Can't find your answer ? Ask !
