OP, I guess I got out-voted. Go AMD like they suggest.
i had to read his post several times aswell this bit got me,
intels great if youve got money - implying intel costs alot of money
AMD is a great value - implying AMD are cheap
intel is more durable ** and better built buit for budget - umm are you now saying go intel if your on a budget :?
but you cannot beat an AMD for budget builders - ok now your saying AMD is best for budget builders lol :?
anyways i agree sort of, intel at the top end of the market are better but comparing an intel dual core to a 5200X2 or whateva the same price AMD is AMD will win everytime,.
ok JogaBonito1502 - ok your in a tight budget ? how tight ? i mean this would be my general advice in ££ so roughly double to make $$
£450 and above-- id go with intel as you'd probably pull off a e8400 or Q6600 with a mid range graphics card and 2GB RAM,
below £450 - you may want to consider AMD as you'd prob get a 6000X2 2Gb RAM and a mid range graphics card.
i have 2 bad things to say about AMD though, they keep changing there processor socket type, which is bad for trying to upgrade your CPU later.
and its about upgrading again, i cant help thinking if i do an AMD build then when i come to upgrade later ill have say £150 to spend on a CPU and ill know that i can get a much better processor from intel.
so if your going AMD beware you may be dissapointed when upgrading as your socket type may now be outdated or there will be a better equivalent inel out.
