Building gamming pc, processor help!

Petersnoboard93
Ok I got a lot of help when I asked about building a gaming pc on dell and i decided to make one myself now. So my question is, is the price diference worth it to get the second processor? and are these processors suitable for a gaming pc? If not please make recomendations.

    first of all your buying an intel processor which would be your first mistake. statistics show that AMD CPU's are much better for gaming, and in my experience id have to agree with the stats.

    second, you dont need a dual core processor. no game will most likely ever use both cores. games have yet take advantage of 64bit technology, nevermind multiple cores. the 2.66GHZ Intel goes for 300+. My CPU is overcocked at 2.6GHZ the same as that one, and goes for $200 less.

    I recommend an ASUS mobo and an AMD CPU single core CPU to save money. What you want is RAM and a very nice video card. Those are key to making a good gaming PC. And if you get the right AMD CPU you can overclock one to very nice speeds if you have efficient cooling which is cheap.

    Here is what i recommend:

    2GB of RAM and your favorite video card. Be prepared to spend at least 250$ on a good video card.

    Yes it is...

    if u are realy cheap go with a single core buh if u want more meat and dont want to be called a lagger everytime you play then go with a dual core 2.5 or u can go with a 3.2... MAKE SURE TO GET AMD IF THIS IS GAMING

    I personally have a 2.5 ghz quad amd. its about 250$$
