I am new here.
Building my first machine here, could maybe use some feedback. Im starting off my build with the first question being AMD or Intel. I decided that all my life I have had intel...why not try something new. I also am mostly concerned with the speed of games, which I have always heard amd is superior for. Concerned a bit with the difference between AMD FX and the dual core X2s. Positives and negatives of each would be great! I figure this is an important step because it decides my socket type AM2 or 939. I like the idea of AM2 beind ddr2 only because it seems like it wont be outdated as quickly maybe? However, I am noticing that the only 64 fx's that support AM2 is the FX 62 which is rather costly. But now I am thinking that if I went with the X2(provided it is a sufficient model to suit my needs) I could go with the AM2 socket mobo with maybe a X2 4400. So...this leads me to my first question, X2 with AM2 or 64FX (maybe 55 or 57) with a 939 socket.
Thanks for all your replies.
