I know that intel and athlon run at different speeds and that some people like/dislike them both for different reasons. But I was reading the sticky of which cpu to buy and it clams that the AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800 is the best, yet I noticed that it is only a 2.0Ghz. So my question is isnt 2.0Ghz rather old/outdated. I understand that they can be overclocked (I dont know how to do any of this) but I would still think that at the least they would be suggesting would be a 3.0ghz. I'm looking to build a new pc and I really need some help picking out a cpu. Any information would really be appreciated, Thanks.
