men ugg AMD X2 4800 vs
Gents, I need some serious help! I have allocated $4000+ to build my gaming/video editing computer but I am stuck on which processor to buy. I know the FX 57 is the best for gaming but since I do video editing the FX 57 might not be the best because it only processes single thread information. Granted building a kick ass system today and in two months it will be obsolete. I game 50%,
edit roughly 30%, and the rest is usually internet related. I know the majority of games are single thread but who knows in about a year or less? Any help you guy’s can provide me would be greatly appreciated.

The best way to go is Dual core 100%. Although the X2 or Intel Equiv. Also when windows 64 bit arrives the Dual core will come into its own as Microsoft has a patch out to utilise the 2nd core. As you do video editing etc the Dual Core system will be a monster processor. It will not cost you any more then the high end singel core if fact it will be less, but your RIG will be as future proof as possible. Also make sure you get the AMD cores with the 1MB L2 cache not the 512. As for video editing it will be priceless. So thats the 4400+ the 4800.
