Yak yak yak, keep speaking wrong about the myth that Intel somehow does better in multi-tasking even though it sucks.

I'm sure PCMarks say different though don't they?

Everything shows that AMD is faster. So stop being braindead.

Oh no. I'm getting too many different opinions. I keep the family PC on for about 8 hours a day, so i guess the heat and noise is important. That's why i may go with AM, probably. I was thinking of getting the 754-pin Sempron 2600+ with an nForce3 motherboard, so that i can upgrade to a 64-bit 1 if necessary, but i doubt i'll need 64-bit as that's supposed to be only better for gaming, right?

64-bit is great for a number of other things, least of all gaming. But you could get an EM64T processor in a Celeron D Motherboard and while Prescotts are loud and hot; a Celeron will not make a great deal of sound with a reasonably cheap fan and still be as cool as an AMD64.

But yeah; that sounds like a perfectly reasonable machine Tell us how it goes.

Ok, i got it today. I got:

AMD Athlon 64 2800+
512MB Elixir DDR400 SDRAM (1 stick)
400-Watts 'Win Power' PSU
Gigabyte K8NS nForce3 754-pin Motherboard
Toshiba Samsung 16x DVD-/+RW

All together, it cost me 210.

I used a 40GB ATA 7,200rpm HDD with it and installed Linux Fedora Core 3. Sadly, i was disappointed with FC3, so i'll have to wait until Windows XP is installed for me to be able to notice the power of it, as i'm a total newbie to Linux. Thanks to everyone for their help, and hopefully, it's money well-spent!

Why the hell would anyone get an EM64T processor?

A low-level consumer who wants a 64-bit Intel of course. The reason is at the processor states. It's 64-bit ready.

Well that's certainly a better set up than with a Celeron D! Very good positioning on the stuff - should last you a very long time.

Good luck with getting Windows on there and seeing how it runs!
