Hey guys, i was curious what Processor chipsets you use for gaming, such as DooM 3 and curious so see what your opinions on other chips were.

Im a bit dumb to add the Celeron as most of us know they are crap!

I had a Duron 1.3 Ghz and upgraded to a Celeron 2.5Ghz, had same ram (Acutally the new ram was faster) and it was slower than my Duron!!!

stay away from intel, they are just about speed; no technology

Haha, yeh thats what i said! Ive acutally got a AMD 64 at the moment but i did try out a celeron and i was having fits it was so slow it wouldnt even run asteroids!

... Yes i do have asteroids on my pc.... but no it did run asteroids, i was quite amazed with it being able to run it...

I have the config that you see in my signature.

So far, my computer is super fast. And runs DOOM 3 on high. This is cus I have an ATI and DOOM 3 is optimized for NVIDIA, otherwise I have no doubts that my PC would run DOOM 3 on ultra mode. And also, I have smoked Half Life 2 at all the highest settings possible as well. So far I have no problems with my PC, its a dream.

I have been using an Intel chip to run Doom 3, but I will soon be switching to an AMD 64 chip.

I'm running an AMD FX51 64 and haven't had any problems at all. I've learned to stay away from the others. I've tried to give unbiased opinions in the past and I'm here again. There are some chips that run better for different things. If you're into gaming, a lot of people I know use AMD and they have no problems. Most, if not all the Intel's run really hot, so they tend to have more problems when it comes to gaming.

AMD 64. My father owns one and every game runs great. Also (in my opinion) AMD's are better for gaming. especially the 64's

Let me tell you the sordid story of the Celeron. Once there was a great chip maker called Intel. They made very good processors, and had not to long ago made themselves a name with the creation of the Pentium processor, later to be followed by the MMX series. Another company, rather unsatisfied with Intel's high asking prices, got a licence from Intel to use their architecture and started creating their own processors with the goal of creating cheaper processors that did two processes per clock cycle. This company was, of course, AMD. They released the K6 set of processors, and while they didn't manage to do two processes per clock cycle and ran hotter than Intel CPU's, they were cheaper and otherwise equal to their Pentium counterparts. This worried Intel. First, Intel tried adding a feature to their processors called "SSI" to make their processors run better for certain applications that AMD CPU's. AMD created "3D Now!" which could run most SSI applications. AMD was now taking a noticeable chunk out of Intel's market, and it was partially because AMD was offering their CPU's cheaper than Intel was. Intel, instead of lowering its own prices, decided to take their Pentium chip and remove all but the Level 1 cache, which left very little on-die cache. They then sold this "new" processor at roughly the same price as AMD chipsets. Even though these chips were inferior many times over to any AMD or Pentium chips, they started selling well. AMD noticed this and said "Guess what? If you can remove your CPU cache and sell the processor cheaper, so can we." And thus, the Duron was born.

Easier to read that way. :D

Well any AMD is a good chip. They are more optimized for Multimedia. Intel is for multi tasking. Each have their own advantages, but AMD is generally the better processor, for the average consumer.
