First, link doesn't work.

Second, you can't expect someone to post in the first hour. If you do, you should write it on a chatroom instead. If someone does post, that's awesome! But there are a lot of these threads (I was one of the lucky people, so I suppose I shouldn't talk) circulating. I just thought I'd let you know.

Anyways, I'm going to quote pretty much everyone that's helped anyone else that chose an AMD Processor within the past 3 months; Go Intel. As of now, the Core 2 Duo is apparently the better choice.

If you wait another... 2-3 months, Intel is supposed to double the L2 Cache of the E6400 and the E6300, so if you don't mind waiting until Quarter 2, you can go for that.

Last, I'm going to once again quote people, and recommend to any admin reading this that we should have a template for this kind of topic.

Using PC For:
Absolute Requirements:[List 3 things, MAX.]
Nice-to-have's:[List 3 things, MAX.]
Give us those things (at least what you're using it for and budget) and you'll get better help.

If you look theyre slogan is "we build it you play it" so the pc comes assembled, but im pretty sure they overcharge you for this.

Also, the link is broken.
