Default Theese new Inte Pentium Dual Core's

I dunno if anyone has noticed but there is some intel pentium Dual cores on the market . The lowest of being an Intel Pentium Dual core E2140 which has an 800FSB and is 1.6GHZ with 1MB l2 cache .
I am currently looking for a budget dual core processor and this could be within my price range if i decide to buy
What i want to know is how does this compare to the AMD of the simillar price range . SO that would be about the AMD athlon X2 4000+
And so which one should i buy
Or does anyone have any other suggestions like get a AMD athlon X2 3600+ and just OC it

I would go with the 4000+. It seemed to perform better in some benchmarks I looked at.

Yeah i nwas looking at benchmarks for both the intel and the AMD and it seemed AMD was winning in quite a few . Also the 4000 is currently on offer price of 41 pounds

They aren't bad. I've worked with 97 of the E2160s. If they truly are being beaten, go to AMD unless you are an intel fanboy.

Which 4000+? The X2 4000+ beats the E2140, but the single core doesn't. The E2160 is about on par with the Brisbane X2 4000+, but the E2160 beats all the other versions:

Keep overclocking in mind as well. Even if you can push it up to 2 GHz, that's a big difference.
