    Is Intel or AMD best for playing Games?

    I have seen some serious problems in AMD

    1. One friend can start NFS MW but the game closes automatically.
    2. One friend can play NFS MW's first race without any problem but when he starts his next race his computer slows down and he can't play this race.

    But most of the people sugggests AMD and not the Intel. I am confused.
    Please help.

    See the problems your friends are facing is either due to corrupt game files or some hardware problem.
    Its a clear thing that AMD is better for gaming.

    Game is ok. I can play on P4 & Intel D101 GGC board. As for h/w problem no friend in my city (Nagpur) is happy with AMD. My vendor also don't recommend AMD due to the faluty cases he saw with his customers. He told that failure rate is nearly 80% i.e. 4 out of 5 are faulty.

    its just bogus..
    AMD never produce such bad processors mine 7 pcs and 7 amd no faults..

    maybe your dealers sells grey products ..

    and amd nopes .. best for gaming..
    might be a ram problem..

    and one more thing that every pc can run well its just who assembles it and uses genuine softwares with correct setup,drivers and maintenence..

    Well said A 8800GTX will solve most of the problems regarding games.

    My dealer dont like AMD
    I wasent able to copy a scratchless original DVD,
    i asked him he said it is fault of your chipset and AMD processor
    I dont think it is true ,
    well about faults, I got my RAM,TV tunner,SMPS,MODEM replaced\repaired from him.components not faulty were Proccessor,MOBO,DVD RW.
    in a single configuration i took from him.
    So i think it is just that faults occure and some blame AMD for it
    rather way I think AMD is good for overclocking and budget PCs until cheaper core 2 DUO come into market.

    I dont think AMD can cause any problems.....The overheating thing about AMD is a MyTH......
    AMD are superb overclockers....

    yeha my processor goes hardly adove 51 degrees these days(its bit cold)
    (well overclocking from 1.8 to 2.0 and playing newer games temp. just goes above 51)
    but some older Intel models I have seen (fy friends one) heates more than mine without overclocking!

    nothing is perfect in the world! it might be a manufacturing defect? i thing i got the solution insert linux cd and do memory test u will get the better idea.
    or may be there could be problem with the game? r u using licenced game or the pirated 1?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    and yeah amd is the best :) and cheap too but it is not popular because not every body is aware about it.. may be because amd keep itself away from advertisement (specially on tv) and may be that's why amd is cheap?

    AMD or Intel matter later .. what matter most in gaming is the GPU , not the CPU .. most AMD's are sold with onboard Via UniChrome chipsets (with very bad 3D acceleration) ... while Intel's are equipped with atleast 915's these days .. those chips are the one's that causes troubles with gaming ..

    Even a P4 2.0 GHz will play games when equipped with a 7800GS .. albeit a Athlon64 3000+ will be better , but still the games will be playable enough ..

    I've heard lots of people complain about AMD with some very stupid reasons .. dealers who do this are infact less aware of the market ... most people rely on Intel , so such dealers can bag in a lot of cash by giving false hope's .. just how the market goes ...
