Default Hmm..should I go with the intel or the amd??

http://www.walmart.com/catalog/prod...oduct_id=426789 &cat=41937&type=19&dept=3944&path=0%3A3944%3A3951% 3A41937

Price 899.99
note* the reason im considering this one is that it comes with Anthlons new Dual Core processor which I hear owns the new Pentium D's BUT it comes with a shitty Video card and lack of screen, which I could buy? haha..
or



http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/conf g.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&oc=DXPS400F1&s=dhs


note* after I upgraded it, it comes with: 19 inch flat panel display 2.8 Pentium D Processor 1 gig of ram 250GB Hard drive 256MB ATI Radeon X600 SE

Price 1,229

Yeah, definitely amd dual core... that'll last you a while... intel has even admitted saying that their dual cores were rushed into production....

That Dell link is screwed up, but if it's from Dell, it must be Intel. Dump that, and get the dual core Athlon X2.

Ok well let me rephrase then. If you are a gamer then always go AMD Athlons, they are, bluntly, much better for this. Unlike Intel which are more for Office work.

well i don't seem 2 have any problems playin games with my intel 3.0GHz. I don't get any lag other than occasional "video lag", that'd be from my mistake of buying the X600 pro though.

the only difference between an AMD and Intel when it comes to gaming is that AMD will get better fps; max of 10 average.
