Hey me too! It usually is in the computer world, unless you're like the sob stories where pplz have FX-55s and something happens to it and they can't repair it so they have to get a worse computer

Default some help please

which is the best processor for 3d moddeling and using office,(sum games)

Pentium-4 3.4GHz, Hyper-Threading Prescott 1M L2 Cache retail box with heatsink and fan

Pentium 4 LGA775 3.4GHz, 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache, Boxed

or Amd 64 3500+ s939

there all around the same price so it dosen't really matter.

i already know the amd is better in gaming and not so good at other stuff but i want a non biased opinion

I would suggest the P4 3.4GHz Prescott, I've heard those are good processors... however you won't get the 64 bit support for the future. If you're planning on wanting to use 64 bit applications in the next couple years, I would get the AMD 64, but yes, the P4 will perform better on apps.

i thought the lga 775 was newer and runs cooler than the 478 pin?

i know the p4 (prescott and 775) are betta at apps but how
much beeter compared to the amd 64??
can you give me some benchmarks?
is there a massive difference between the two , a noticeable
differnce??
i guess any thing is an improvement from a p3 800....

thanx

socket 775 is newer, but a lot of the processors are not very good so far, especially the 600 series

You might want to make a thread if you want a lot of opinions.
Myself I would get a 64 bit intel. Really fast plus 64 bit.

I think this one is in that budget area, but you could step down to the 3.0 ghz too, won't make a huge diff

Oh and btw here is a benchmark comparison between the intel and AMD. BAsically the Intel beats AMD in most non-gaming tasks and actually with this new processor as you can see in the gaming benchmarks it is almost right on par with the AMD. So I think the processor I linked you is the best choice for gaming and multitasking or whatever else.

it will be interesting to see 64 bit AMD and Intels with 64 bit Windows.
