New Build Processor Help

i have built 2 pc's now 1 for me with c2d and 2 Gb RAM etc
and anova with pentium D and 2Gb RAM

and im buildin my 3rd now but its for a friend now the whole time i have bin into computers i have very very rarely dealt with AMD systems

so im asking you for your appinion on certain processors,

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ v Intel Pentium D 915

AMD Anthlon 64 X2 3800+ link

Intel Pentium D 915 Link

i am gonna build the pc with a budget of 300 - 400 hence then Pentium D and not C2D so keepin in mind the budget for the rest of the parts and how good its gonna be im thinkin its gonne be roughly,

Processor : ??
RAM : 2GB pc5400
Graphics : 256Mb nvidia
Hardrive : 160Gb SATA

well u pretty much get the drift so wot processor your reckon ??

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Socket AM2 Dual Core OEM Processor


Intel Pentium D 915 (2.80GHz) Socket 775 FSB800 2x2MB Retail Boxed Processor

Re: New Build Processor Help
Although the new intel dual core proccessors are really cool, Out of them two I'd definitly go for the AMD.

Re: New Build Processor Help
Yeah, it should be the same, just make sure everything's compatible.

Definitely go for the X2 3800+ though. I've got that processor in one of my computers, and it's great.
