Perhaps this question is obvious. I'm about to build a gaming rig, i already have the quad core q6700 extreme for video editing, but i'm not sure whats good for games anymore, been out of the loop for almost a year now. These are the two i am looking at. AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Windsor 3.2GHz $209.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103191 or Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 Kentsfield 2.4GHz $277.99 http://www.newegg.com/product/Product.asp?item=N82E16819115017 Which is better, i have no idea on this one. I obviously know the inherent positives for the quad, better multitasking etc.... but the amd has two cores which are both almost 1ghz faster. But the intels overall power in 4 is far faster for programs that can utilize it.
