Re: which one is better for gaming?
My desktop's got a 3.2Ghz P4 and it's fine for gaming. It's just my GPU sucks, and I've only got 512MB RAM, and a crappy stock motherboard... it'll very likely be getting upgraded soon, keeping the P4 because there's no need to replace it.
But my laptop (see sig for specs) runs everything I throw at it pretty bloody well, and it's Intel. So it's up to you.
Master of common sense. If you don't like it, stop reading.
