INTEL P4 3.0 GHZ or AMD 64 2800+????
Okay... i need a bit of more help on picking between a INTEL and AMD. I know that there are alot of other threads that discuss this but mines a bit different... its not just the processor.... it's also other hardware. Also keep in mind that theyre the SAME EXACT PRICE.
INTEL P4 3.0 GHZ___________________________________________
-TURBO X-DREAMER CASE 350 WATT W/ WINDOW & LCD Temperature Display (Black)
-STANDARD CASE POWER SUPPLY
-12" COLD CATHODE NEON LIGHT SOUND ACTIVED (Blue)
-(800Mhz FSB) IntelŪ PentiumŪ 4 CPU @ 3.0GHZ 1MB w/ Hyper Threading
-*(DDR400-800MHz FSB)ABIT IS7-V2 848P, IntelŪ i848 Mainboard PRESCOTT SUPPORT w/ LAN & 5.1 SOUND W/SATA
-Geil Value 256 MB PC3200 400MHz DDR MEMORY
-IBM 80GB 7200 RPM IDE ATA100 2MB BUFFER INTERNAL HARD DRIVE
-NVIDIA GeForce-4 MX-4000 64MB AGP
-3D WAVE ON-BOARD 5.1 SOUND CARD 18 BIT
-Intel Pentium 4 478-PIN CPU COOLING FAN
-Logitech X530 70Watts 5.1 Configuration Speaker System
The keyboard & mouse junk i discluded.
AMD ATHLON 64 2800+_______________________________________
Same exact thing i posted above but the differences are as follows:
-(754-pin) AMD ATHLON64 2800+ CPU w/ Hyper Transport Technology
-(754-pin Socket) Abit KV8 PRO VIA K8T800 Chipset AGP8X w/LAN,USB2,&Audio
-GEIL VALUE 512MB PC3200 400MHz DDR MEMORY
-NVIDIA GeForce-FX 5200 128MB DDR W/ TV OUT & DVI
Okay, as i look at it, the major difference between these two is the RAM and the Vid card. Since everthing else is the same except processor speed, the ram, and the vid card, I will probably conclude that i should get the amd 64 deal. My guess of the huge difference between the ram and the vid card of the two is probably because the INTEL p4 w/ Hyperthread is better than the AMD 64? What do you guys suggest, the intel or the amd?
