    be specific. different games have different demands for smooth gameplay. What do you play? What motherboard socket are you trying to reuse?

    suck up the extra ~50 and buy a Intel Core Duo 2 "Conroe" E6600, they fucking own. [I have one]

    third on the new core 2 duo's. They're very good, and this is coming from someone who's been an AMD junky for a long time.

    The new Intel processors are top of the line and better than anything AMD has to offer. The best part? theyre extremlly cheap, you can get one for 150$ 300$ 400$ 600$ or 1000$ for the best one.

    The 300$ is actually really good, even the less expensive 150$ one is fairly close.

    core 2 ftw, but you'll need a new motherboard and the trimmings

    Intel's E6600 (third-tier in their product line) tops (and by substantial margins at times) AMD's big gun, the FX-64.

    The answer couldn't be more clear.
