Intel vs AMD can be argued all day long which im not going to even say what i prefer cause I have used both and both are honestly good decisions. If your going Dual Core however i would go AMD unless you feel like spending 1000 dollars on the top Intel dual core which is pretty nice . If you think you might overclock then i would go with amd as well.
I can get an intel 3.8 ghz pentium D dual core for 300 about.

it is a 800 mhz FSB though which is kinda disapointing, but I shoulden't really notice that and I could upgrade later when the price drops some. But this still dosen't mean I am definatly getting the Intel, I am a prefectionist so I'll probobly spend a while reaserching.

lol the FSB is a deceptive figure since the RAM that you will probably buy will be 533 MHz tops

I went ahead and addedc the spec sheet since the first one doesn't have one.

after looking at some articles that actualy did have comparasins mainly
I think I might have to change my mind about going intel.
