Dunno what folding@home units are, and video-encoding should be fast enough with an AMD anyway, unless you encode like ridiculously-large files.

But the 3400+ is pretty stellar processer, but os is the 3.2. You can OC both of them to quite a bit, both are really a good choice.

Intel=better at processing data, thats why they are used for server
Amd=better at data handling, thats why they run demanding games so well, because its running it so fast, as where intel just moves it

I dont know exactly say it how imean it, but i did my best, lol

Im a hardhead. I still think intel will do just fine for gaming.

The 3400+ rating is AMD's way of comparing it to intel. Just like the others. Its supposed to be as fast or faster than a 3.4 GHZ intel.

IMO, the difference in performance is quite neglidgeable. All I want is a CPU that can
download a few files in the background, browse multiple web pages, check e-mail, use 1, maybe 2 IM's, play a video in Winamp, and maybe have some other programs open in the background.

I think that an Athlon 64 or a Pentium 4 could handle that. But the Athlon consumes about 100W less and is generally cheaper than the competing model, so Athlon 64 is the best for me.
