Could someone please offer me some advice. I wish to start building my own machine, but would like an oppinion on which would be the better processor between these two, one from Intel, and the other an AMD.

Pentium 4 650 Socket 775 2MB 800FSB - http://www.dabs.com/uk/channels/compone ... klinx=3M4Z

Athlon 64 3700+ Socket 939 1MB - http://www.dabs.com/uk/channels/compone ... klinx=3P77

Now, I see that the Intel has larger cache memory, but all opinions would be appreciated. Both are 64-bit processors.

Mnay many thanks :D

personaly i would go with the AMD

i LOATHE intel though so it is a biased opinion

what is the computer gonna be used for?
if gaming use an AMD unicore because of the speed

for a server get a high end intel because of the power

if you want my reasoning for my bias here goes

price to performance ratio is an AMD tilt

intel isnt a gaming processor and doesn't(to my knowladge) posess a fsb of anything above 800 MHz and overdoes the clock

and i suffered some second degree burns from an intell chip exploding on me(i think and hope it was an isolated incedent though) while it was unpluged and i was replacing the thermal compound :-(

i was just wondering if leaving your computer on past a certain amount of time...say about 2 days plus is healthy for the computer? and also does it matter running intel for long periods versus amd. cuz i have noticed that intel has higher sales and alot of basic home computers use p4 such as dell...shouldnt they go with something that is faster and cheaper such as amd? theres gotta be something that i havent been told.

intel is a brand that illiterates know and is this more mainstream with computer idiots

another thing is intel ups the Clock speed(ie 3.0Ghz) instead of the Fsb for a reason. that reason is the not so computer literate people dont know the dif between the fsb and clock which is the clock being how fast it can process info and fsb being how fast that processed info can be used. anywho a clock of 3.0Ghz is impresive and compared to 2.0 a normal person will likley get the 3Ghz system regardless of weather the 2Ghz system is a touch faster because of the fsb

ok. Is that as clear as glass or mud???


*pssst go with mud*

Mike, you are 1+3+3=7 no matter what :). heh. Well, GO WITH AMD. Remember - Intel Inside can't DIVIDE.

Don't even give them your money, they have not earned where they are today fairly.

intel is just there for competition in order to keep advancing technology.

i say they have another 5-10 more years before leaving the computer microprocessor market.

but then again i am a bit on the extreme end of my views

Leetspeak is the ebonics of the internet. Created by those who cannot speak the english language either out of ignorance or stupidity.

Used only by the clued in a scoffing manner.

**THROWS TOMATOS AT pclovers**

The only good pentium to ever touch this earth was P3. Everything else is BLEH!
AMD seem to last longer, run better, and > Intel.

I have seen review in pc magzine. And saw the performance graph of both processor.
So, I liked to stay with intel.

3 = E
1 = L

31337 = ELEET [ELITE]

Yeah, Intel's advertising budget is higher than AMD's annual turnover. If you do decide to go with Intel I advise you to wait awhile, they don't believe they'll be able to compete with the current high end AMD processors for 18 months; let's hope for thier sake AMD have a developement freeze.

For more info check out this story from theregister http://www.theregister.co.uk/2005/10/29/intel_xeon_2009/
