AMD or Pentium 4?
I need to buy a new computer so I'll use one of the system configurators on a website. I only need a motherboard, a processor, a hardrive (40 or 80 GB), 512 DDR RAM, geForce 4 MX 440 128MB 8x DDR, and a case with 400watt PS. I will use the computer for gaming, graphics (photoshop...), flash, and other things. I want the price 450 USD or lower. I can't decide if I will get an AMD or a Pentium 4. They both have good and bad sides: pentiums seem faster (more catche mem, faster FSB and all that), and the AMD's are cheaper. Which processor would be the faster for my budget? (that $450 dollars includes the other components mentioned above)
