AMD or Intel Dual Core Processors?
Intel Chipsets or other?
Intel MotherBoard or other?

What I really want information on, is shall I get AMD or Intel Dual Core Processors?

AMD has kicked Intel's ass in games for years now. A Dual Core setup should do you right, but I'd wait until the game is nearly out before getting one- the way tech's going, if you get a new chip now, six months after the game is out something better will be around.

Chipsets really don't matter, but a lot of people here swear by the nForce Boards.

See above regarding the Motherboard.

I saw someone mention here on the forums that INtel will be instituting some kind of DRM in their dual core chips.
What that boils down to is fook intel for their already overpriced crap :D

By the time this game comes out I want Dual Core Athlons. (kick ass)
And Crossfire Radeon cards.

I wouldn't touch an intel for gaming with a bargepole

I'm going to wait out the grafix wars...next gen will be out before UT2K7 so I'll probs get one (or two or whatever) of those.

speculations - speculations - speculations - speculations - speculations
it s pretty impossible to know right now how much will cost the standart PC that will be able to run UT2k7 properly...

By the time this game comes out I want [a/two] Dual Core [AMD chip(s)]. And Crossfire [ATI] cards.Me too.

Intel is overpricing and underperforming. The current $1000 Intel chip gets pwnt by the current $1000 AMD chip. I wouldn't keep my hopes up that they'll ever be able to compare again at this point.

and note that youcan install AMD64 X2 in the current K8 mainboards and get your performance boost right now (or at least after updating the BIOS). For Intel you'll need to buy a new, and very expensive motherboard. Add the fact that according to some tests I've read about on gameguru.box.sk AMD outperfoms Intel. After that I'd say that Intel CPU gets really pwnt.

Dual core and a physics processor will help

Things that will really help is waiting until the game has been released. I'm pretty sure that it'll be easier to guess what kind of hardware works best for this game.

Of all the possible new hardware I think that the physics processing unit is going to be the most interesting/controversial for us consumers.

Wait till it comes out.

If you don't need the additional power right now, you are just wasting a year of your computer's life - 1 less year before it becomes obsolete

You can waste SO MUCH money buying new CPU+mobo+vc's all the time.
