AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+

Strengths: This is one damn fast processor. It not only gives you (2) 2.4GHz cores, but also allows you to be able to run 64-bit Windows and apps.

Weakness: It runs VERY hot. Must have very good cooling system in case. Also this is VERY expensive!

While I almost but the dual core FX processor that just came out, I couldn't justify spending another $400 on top of the $600 I spent for this processor, for a little jump in speed. Even though this processor is very expensive, I think it was worth it. It gave me everything I wanted. I have 2 fast AMD Athlon 64 cores at 2.4GHz with 2Mb of cache and the ability to upgrade to 64 bit Windows when I...

GOOD GOD THIS THING IS FAST

Strengths: fast, good cache, overclockable, fast o and a DUAL Core,

Weakness: so so fragile, and a nice heatsink is recommened

This thing is fasst. Any application works great with this processor, and multi-threaded applications recieve a huge performance upgrade. Sure sure, you can say that there arent many, but 3 months later, youll be glad to spend the extra money on dual core. Works great with my OCZ 2GB CAS 2 Ram and my ATI 1900XT running. This thing is monster.

AMD Dual Core

Strengths: this thing is FAST!!! it can do a lot of things at once and plays games great.

Weakness: expensive

this is definitely better than the intel dual core. if you have the money, go with it! eventually everything will be dual core so you might as well start with it now.

No stopping in AMD!

Strengths: Very fast. Flawless performance. Can do multitasking without hesitation. Stable. Quiet!

Weakness: runs a little hot when under load. 114F at times. You can definitely hear fan start then. nothing else!

I previously had the amd xp 3500+. This cpu blows that one away. My setup includes xfx 7800gt, corsair 2gb ram, 2 WD hard drives in RAID 0 and Asus A8N32-SLI deluxe. Windows took about 10 minutes total to install (but it did take nearly 2 hours to format the hard drives for NTFS). I am overall very pleased with AMD. The cool n quiet technology definitely much better than previous. I have noticed...
