first off, so you get a good idea.
AMD PWNS EVERYTHING THAT MAKES INTEL REMOTELY A GOOD CPU. AMD IS THE BEST CPU FOR ANYTHING YOU WILL BE USING YOUR COMPUTER FOR. now the dual cores can be used for anythying: multi tasking w/e they kick Intels fat rich *** lazy behind.
are you buying this already made? or are you putting it together?
I'm pretty sure it's not possible that you could of sounded any stupider.
Moving along ... here is a less biased and more accurate description of where Intel and AMD exceed:
Single Core Multitasking: Intel
Dual Core Multitasking: AMD
Single Core Encoding/Multimedia: Intel
Dual Core Encoding/Multimedia: AMD
Single Core Gaming: AMD
Dual Core Gaming: AMD
Single Core Mobility: Intel
Dual Core Mobility: Intel
So to sum all that up, if your looking into desktops, AMD typically beats Intel in single core and dual core situations, except the encoding of files and if you'll be doing mostly media work with music or photos and the like. For mobility, laptops and notebooks, Intel pretty much owns AMD everywhere with performance and battery life.
