Intel is king now in terms of performance. The things that made AMD shine before are no longer there.
Price per performance on the low end really, strange to me since the last time I bought a CPU before this year - to get the comparable performance out of an Intel chip, it was gonna cost at least twice as much, if not more.
Now's a great time to build, powerful dual-core Intel chips are cheap, RAM is reasonable, the video card wars have driven prices down dramatically, just don't go for top of the line since you'll regret it when the prices drop substantially in just a month or two
same. Hell if I know what people are doing. I can keep my OLD windows boxes with 2-3 plus weeks uptime. My only question regarding this build: do I have anything to worry about with drivers and 64 bit or has all that anti-64 bit hype faded? Also, is there anything I should be aware of with that hardware set up?
I know you from CGHMN so I know you know your shit. I'm in WAR beta now (lol pre-order) and now I want to build a machine that can blow that game up.
I'm also going to add this vid card off the bat:
It's not amazing but it will do WAR at max settings and it will laugh @ WoW
