    I can't speak to the other names above, but nVidia makes a fantastic Intel Core 2 Duo chipset, the 680i. It's a 4x Customer Choice Award winner. I have it myself running a Core 2 Duo, and it's one of the best motherboards I've ever had.

    Hi all.
    OK Which way do we go from here 2nd January 2008. Do we go the way of Intel, if you require the fastest PC and the most expensive then yes, or do we prepare for the more stable and graphic compatible AMD to make its challenge.
    Amd first attempt with the Quad CPU as serious bios problems and should be left alone for a while.
    But the new Am3 is on the way. But don't rush into it at the moment. As a true AMD follower I have moved into the fray slowly check my spec.
    If you do not require an upgrade at present wait for a couple of months to see the way AMD is going, You may save a lot of money and get a more advanced PC. This is just my opinion on the currant situation.
    Happy new year to you all,
    Rex

    AMD is no more "graphic compatible" than Intel. For now, Intel is well ahead of AMD with their Core processors.

    Yes well it is a fact that AMD's processors are no more graphic compatible. There is no difference in what passes in and out of the processor socket (generally), the difference is in the processor itself.

    Also, Intel's processors are slightly cheaper and faster than other's.

    Hi again.
    If you believe what you have just stated that is fine. But I believe what little I know about graphic stability in the two types of processors, and thanks to the Israelis, Intel has got the faster and more overclock able processor at the present time. But should you feel like going to work on the net You may just find out, that the majority of experts will say that nVidia chip sets work better with an AMD CPU as well as their own GPU. And the better AMD compatible mobo's are built on Nvidia Chip-sets. But this old brain of mine dose get things out of place now and again,
    All the best
    Rex.
    May I sugest you check intels core 2 prices against AMD I have just bought the fastest clocked stock CPU ever for under £100 UK
    Not the fastest but in tests came no 3 to intelsE6850 @£175 and intels E6750 @£123 and the e6750 only just piped the amd 6400 by a whisker.

    Gentlemen: Replying to a guide whether with your opinion or questions is not relevant. If you have a question, then start a new thread. Due to the less than adult behavior of the last few posts, I am now closing this thread.
