And that is fine, that is what he is looking for, stats, not bad mouthing the competition
All anyone was trying to do here was give their opinion of hardware they have experience with, not shoot the other guy down
Oh please cut the crap. I'm trying to tell him that one product works better than another in his price range and you're essentially accusing me of being an Intel fantard because I'm trying to give him good advice. Stop being such a damn hypocrite. In fact given that I said i'd be advising him to use the AMD processor if he'd been programming or rendering i'd suggest practicising what you preach and being actually objective.
You are being dishonest because while you are mentioning such benchmarks, you don't mention that he has 4 cores more to do anything he wishes for, multitasking is becoming mainstream in gaming (and it will be more with the nextgen consoles), programs are also taking advantage of this.
Selective information is just as bad as lying.
It's not selective information, nobody who actually understood how hardware works would make an argument like yours. AMD pack more cores onto their processors for a reason: Because they're inefficient and do not do as much work per clock cycle as Intel's processors do. Have you never actually stopped to ask yourself why, despite having twice as many cores and operating at a higher clock speed they barely manage to break even with their Intel counterparts in most performance tests? It's you that is being selectively dishonest because when a person is gaming having 4 cores sitting idle wouldn't exactly be a great deal of use to him anyway, being that very few sane gamers run intensive background tasks and game at the same time.
