I've only ever used Intel chips, but i've heard alot of good things about the 64 Bit AMD cards. Im sure another member will be able to help you more, but i would say the AMD's are probably better for what you need

Yeah - if you're buying one then get the 64-bit for futureproofing. It will also be pretty damn good for Writing CDs and DVDs and playing Videos. Mine does brilliantly.

It is down to personally opinion really - but I won't say one is better than the other as I would have before my new Computer. I will say Intel are better; but get an AMD to future proof the Computer with 64-bit Technology.

yeah - personally I prefer Intel but AMD allows you to have Future Proofing until you get another Computer with intel 64-bit Technology. hopefully for me in less than 2 years.
