Considering :o

Considering buying the

Intel Core2 Quad 6600 2.4Ghz LGA775

or

AMD Phenom 9650 Socket AM2+ Quad-Core

or

AMD Phenom 9950 Socket AM2+ Quad-Core

But was wondering which is better?

I have seen reviews but some of them just seem biased, I myself enjoy my Intel since I don't have any overheating problems, unlike AMD .

Which one out of these CPU's would give me better gaming performance (say for Crysis)

Any help would be really appreciated .

Thank you!

I`d recommend the 775, although not because the Intel cpu is better than the other 2, but I prefer the mobos.

would most likely say youd be better with a god overlcoking motherbpard and the q6600 the over**** very well.

On the other had I am an intel user and have bee for a while (see sig) but I would like to give AMD platform a whirl personaly I think there will be little in it so personal choice I guess.

At stock, the AMD chips will be roughly the same in real world apps (the 9650 and 9950 will be slightly slower and faster for the most part, respectively).

Overclocked though, and the Intel chips will pull ahead.

An intel setup with that chip will smash the AMD option

The motherboard, really wouldn't recommend it. Get yourself a P35/P45 chipset..

Asrock? You're kidding, LOL

Right, what kind of a budget do you have for the entire lot?
