Try it and it will make sense.

These are only a suggestion. Based on my previous setups.

Since this post is getting us nowhere, may I ask the kind moderator to CLOSE this post.

Have a nice day.

Thank you.

i just love how these Intel people always talk about "reality" or "truth", but never seem to have any facts to back up their drivel.

i read a LOT, probably more than I should, about tech and such, and I can't ever remember reading a review or comparison that cast any doubt on the quality and performance of an AMD since about ten years ago when AMD was selling chips that needed their own refrigeration unit to prevent a meltdown.

I don't pretend to know EVERYTHING, quite the contrary, but until someone can tell me why I should buy a Pentium, and back it up with facts or at least cite a reliable source i am sticking by AMD all the way.

lets clarify, this topic is getting YOU nowhere.

and now it's just a suggestion. funny, that's not the way you were talking before, mister "truth and reality".

i sense the presence of a tail between his legs...

All right below are some facts:

PC World prices correct for today:pentium 4 1.7....£199.99 inc.vat.

Athlon xp1800£229.99 inc vat.

Athlon xp1900£259.99 inc vat.

The xp1800 operates at 1.533ghz,the xp1900 operatates at 1.6ghz,so this is a pretty good average.

I know exactly what your going to say "the amd`s run faster than the pentiums"wrong,the ram operates faster,not the processor.And the ram is more expensive for the amd than the pentium,that is if you discount the new pentiums which also have faster ram.

In light of these facts,all i can ask is "what exactly are you saving,and how much have you convinced yourselves that pentium owners are being ripped off?

Maybe you just need to feel we are being ripped off to make yourselves feel better,i dont know.All i know is the argument is stupid,as i said in my first post,the best system is the one your using now.

Peace and love to all of you,and Batman,thanks for pissing me off on my birthday.

:p

WTF?!

Those prices are WAY out of whack.

Maybe for Scottish folk, but where I am I can walk down the street and get an Athlon XP 1800 for $289 Canadian, whereas the comparable P4 is $349.

Now, keep in mind, that is walking into the store.

If I order online from the states, I can get an Athlon Xp 1800 for the same price as a Pentium 3 933!.

If you don't believe me, check out bestbuy.com, or you can see the website of my store just down the street here.

I may be mistaken, but the pound is worth a lot more than the canadian dollar, so in fact you are being FLEECED.

So, you have a point: in Scotland the P4 seems to be a decent value. That is very valuable info for the other 5 billion people on the planet.

and I didn't piss you off, you did that all by yourself.

where the hell are you buying your hardware hutch?!?!?! I've NEVER seen a athlon cost more then a pentium....or even CLOSE to the price....

goto www.sharkeyextreme.com and look at weekly cpu prices ot get an idea of what the us price difference are..they must be taxing your athlons lol

Oh yeh guys PC World is only the largest retailer of computers in the UK,it is partnered with Dixons group,which is the largest electronic retailer in the UK.

I wouldn`t expect you to say anything other than what you have said,"i didn`t piss you off,you did it yourself"that is ponpous,its exactly the reason i said you were pompous,you dont even believe your actions affect other people.It must be great going through life believing your above everyone else around you and that your actions have no consequences or reactions.

Even the way you patronisingly say Scottish folk,christ man,we are not some freakin backwater you know,whithout Scotland and France were would Canada be.Anyway iv`e had enough of this crap,i came up with figures to back up my argument(where else would i quote prices from but were i live?)and thats all i can do.If you go through my posts some time, maybe you could tell me and everyone else for that matter,where i rubished amd processors,just saying i did doesnt make it so.I never cast any doubts on amd`s ability,did i????

Qumahlin all i can say ito you is WHY would you spend good money on a good processor,ie AMD,and do this to it?....

"why does everyone insist AMD's are like 5 bajillion degrees hot? my AMD is overclocked from a 1800 to a little under a 2k...and it is still using stock cooling that came with it, and the hottest it has ever gotten is 52 and thats after 24hrs of burn in testsost"Qumahlin.
It sounds like a recipe.
What could you possibly hope to gain from doing this other than riding your new processor to an early grave.Do you really notice the difference between 1800 and nearly 2000,no,its just comforting to you to think yours is bigger,thats called penis envy mate not computing.

oh jeez

boo hoo hoo

just for the record:

Scottish people, nor the Scottish nation are "backwater"

The word pompous, I don't think that word means what you think it means

here's the biggest issue for me: you said you were going to come in here and give the AMD people a dose of reality, so don't go crying when they come back and bite you on the ass. thinking you are giving people a dose of reality IS pompous, it's practically the dictionary definition; and don't give me this hurt feelings bit, you are the one who has descended to the level of name calling. obviously you weren't expecting the response you got, and it has thrown you for a loop, but that is no one's fault but your own. what birthday was it, 5th?

as i suggested, the prices you quoted are unrealistic. i cannot explain why they would be this way, but a person wishing to avoid the impression of being pompous would have sought out examples from more than just their own hometown.

i suppose what bothers me the most, though, is that you make assumptions without knowing the facts. you say by overclocking one is riding their processor to an early grave, but you make no effort to support this. do you have a degree in thermodynamics and electronics?

i thought not.

i won't speak for Qumahlin, but here's an example for you as to why one might notice a difference from overclocking:

some people do more with their computers than send jokes via e-mail and porn-surf. Try this: create a fully rendered high poly 3d image in Bryce and then do a full 360 degree rotation in real time. No difference? Not only will the AMD processor
blow Intel out of the water in such applications, but the extra 2 or 3 hundred MHz will mean less work for the GPU and therefore less lag.

this isn't even fun anymore.

What did you say ac6210sr!!!???

What did you say you intel lovin' son of a bitch don't fuckin talk like that about my mom you monkeyrapingdwarffuckinidiot

whoa

shit man, i missed that one. i can't believe he said that. i mean you did kind of start it with the Philipino thing, but to say that about someone's mother? that's low!

i once learned a saying from a Philipino guy, but I don't know how to spell it, so i'll just sound it out for you:

"ee-sa-ang-bala-kalang"

that's probably horribly butchered, so I apologize, but i think it's perfect for ac6210sr.

Now thats the kind of image AMD wants portrayed!!! -- the perfect AMD user! lol...lmao,,,,,rofl



All I have to add to this arguement is this... the majority of people posting with problems are AMD users!

The Intel V AMD war will NEVER end, its like football fans, always hating the other team.

You get what you can afford, be it AMD or Intel, I just know from my own personal experience that Intel make a much more reliable CPU than AMD. -- thats fact cos I've actually used both AMD & Intel.. If VIA could suss out a decent chipset, reliability might get better for AMD. If Intel stayed with rambus they would of lost the CPU crown. I wanna know who thought of the AMD XP namings.. if I had a penny for the amount of people that think an AMD XP1.6 is 1.6Ghz! I think XP must be the in-word at the moment, everything gets XP added to the name now!, and it doesnt always refer to WindowsXP either!

Just my 5p worth!

Wow thats a nice mouth you got there acid burn,might i recommend a couple of rennies.
When you learn to read you can find the answer to your idiotic question in my post.
As for Batman,oh what the hell you are a Canadian,maybe its true what the yanks say about you lot.Whatever,your not worth the bother.

still no points on the board, Hutch, but you did manage another personal attack, the last refuge of the defeated and lost.

Wow, I thought this post died a few weeks back.

Oh well :D
BTW Don't bother correcting me if I am wrong, but up until VERY recently you had to buy that <horribly expensive, quality ??> rambus memory to go with your P4s.
What a joke -- Rambus stock ranks right up there with Enron :D
What great companies.

Anyway, As far as I am concerned PLEASE, PLEASE keep buying INTEL pentiums.
Not only does it keep the price of AMD processors down (for me :D ) but it is really fueling innovation in the alternative chipsets becomming available.

Ok, I'm done.:mad:

Back to takin care of my son (Damn Pink eye !!!)

i would love an AMD

i have a crappy 850mhz p3 and well the performance is gay.....

im currently wanting an athlon xp,,,,, (very soon)

i know theyARE BETTER.....they ARE RELIABLE........THEY ARE FASTER

LOOK at the benchmarks for intel and amd equivalent systems and you will see that AMD out step intel all the way!!!!!!

just my 0.00000002p

erm, just one point...everyone in the uk knows that PC World are a complete ripoff right? I would NEVER goto PC World looking for computer compenents, they always manage to add about 15-20% on top of other retailers. They are fine for Mr&Mrs Normal looking for a nice complete PC but for anyone that knows a little about systems..I'm sure they woud have the sense to go elsewhere.

I used to be very Pro Intel cos I run Cubase on my Machine for making music and was always worried about it not being Stable with AMD. Decided to take the plunge from a p3 800 up to an Athlon xp 1600 and havent looked back since. If anything, cubase is MORE stable with my AMD and my PC runs like a dream. This is all the evidence I need, I'm not saying it's irreputible proof to anyone else... my 2 pence worth
