Default New Build Processor Help

hi,

i have built 2 pc's now 1 for me with c2d and 2 Gb RAM etc
and anova with pentium D and 2Gb RAM

and im buildin my 3rd now but its for a friend now the whole time i have bin into computers i have very very rarely dealt with AMD systems

so im asking you for your appinion on certain processors,

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ v Intel Pentium D 915

AMD Anthlon 64 X2 3800+ link http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...uct_uid=119732

Intel Pentium D 915 Link http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/114196/rb/27213952939

i am gonna build the pc with a budget of 300 - 400 hence then Pentium D and not C2D so keepin in mind the budget for the rest of the parts and how good its gonna be im thinkin its gonne be roughly,

Processor : ??
RAM : 2GB pc5400
Graphics : 256Mb nvidia
Hardrive : 160Gb SATA

well u pretty much get the drift so wot processor your reckon ??


AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Socket AM2 Dual Core OEM Processor

Vs

Intel Pentium D 915 (2.80GHz) Socket 775 FSB800 2x2MB Retail Boxed Processor

Although the new intel dual core proccessors are really cool, Out of them two I'd definitly go for the AMD.

Yeah, it should be the same, just make sure everything's compatible.

Definitely go for the X2 3800+ though. I've got that processor in one of my computers, and it's great.
