Thank you for responding, This is going to be very helpfull in deciding if i should go with amd or intel. I woul like to keep the price for a processor down, like $150-200 usd. so I'm looking at the charts, and looked at different processors and heres what i'm saying....
I'm not getting that expensive of a processor( fx series, nor paying 200$ plus for a core 2 duo 6000 series)
So in the price range of 150-200$ I would pick the E4300, Tom's hardware doesn't show a comparison of the core2duo e4300, which is still more expensive than the amd 4200.
I looked at the multitasking charts( which is what I want it to be doing anyways) And I saw a difference between the 6400(222$) and the amd 4200(154$). There is a whole minute difference Here
. There is abunch of amd processors, but then the next Intel is a few spaces down(only 15 seconds).
One can presume that a 4300 is faster than a 935 presler, but slower than a 6400... So It doesn't really appeal to me yet that it's much faster. I read the reviews and people are saying that it is A great overclocker, So that is always a factor. But i'm not really interested in overclocking(anything is better than the single core 2ghz intel I'm using now). A hundred points on 3dmark, or less than a minute off multitasking is nice, but What i really want to know is how smooth it multitasks. Right now, when I change from program to program it is kinda rough. On my friends AMd, it's very smooth. Would A core2 duo be as smooth as an amd x2?
