Intel After an 18-page in-depth review of Intel's new processor line, The Tech Report concludes: "After years of wandering in the wilderness, Intel has recaptured the desktop CPU performance title in dramatic fashion. Both the Core 2 Extreme X6800 and the Core 2 Duo E6700 easily outperform the Athlon 64 FX-62 across a range of applications - and the E6600 is right in the hunt, as well. Not only that, but the Core 2 processors showed no real weaknesses in our performance tests."

The best two

For money/performance the best two choices are E6600 (@2.4 Ghz) which is a little bit (unnoticeable) faster than AMD X2 5000+. I think that AMD will lower the price of the above CPU to be competitive with intel's one, and I think it might reach 300 $ or less
