I have an agp card(geforce 9500xt) Im not looking for a disc drive, hard drive, power supply or case and I wouldnt mind if the mobo had a pci-e slot in addition to agp but thats def. not neccisary. my budget is about 400 tops with maybe a little squeeze room(i can build what I want basically for 300).
What I dont know what to do is go with amd which would be more expensive for a good processor or if I should go with intel.
NO UNNECCASSARY BIAS im not looking to cause a thing where people come in and just write "intel sucks". I had amd before and it was good I have no prefrence.
Intel ends up w/ higher specs (3ghtz, 800mht fsb, 775pins, 2mb second levle cashe,=$180) then amd for a processor the same price range(2.2 ghtz, 3400, 512kb second level cache, and a ddr400 top comunication speed with ram (standard on all amd), fsb 1066, 939 pins,=$202) I dont like how amd cant have ddr2 ram. thanks for any tips! grrrrar!
