Re: Gaming build for teenager
Here are some quick benchmarks I've found between an AMD 4170 vs. Intel SB 2500. Things seem to be increasingly in Intel favor on this one.
Of course, you're looking at about a $60-75 price differential between the two CPU's. When you look at it based on price, *to me*, it's probably not exactly worth $75 for the performance differences between the two. You might be best spending that extra money beefing up some other component in the system. Hope I don't sound redundant as I'm sure you already know all of this.
EDIT: Sorry, I read further... and you are way past this.
Yeah, someone necro'd the thread to air a completely unsubstantiated claim about Intel CPUs. Still waiting on Konceptz to report back with references.
If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.
