Hey guys, I am finally deciding on my system, but finally I need to know which processor is better?
AMD Athlon XP 3000+
Intel Pentium 4 2.8C GHz
Now I am not going to overclock, as it will be in use while are University, and I don't want to risk melting my computer a night before exams
Now I am thinking the P4, because of the HT Tech. However, I wouldn't be rendering any video's or anything. Infact the most I would be doing would be playing mp3s on winamp while playing some madden2003. Would HT even be noticeable?
I also plan on getting either a 9600XT or 9800Pro. I would rather save the extra 100 bucks and jsut get the 9600XT, but i want to be able to play future games like HL2 and Doom3 with all the bells and whistles. Would I need the 9800Pro, or would be cpu be fast enough to handle it?
Thanks for all the help guys.
