ANY PROCESSOR OVER 2GHZ (except celeron) WILL DO ANYTHING YOU THROW AT IT, AS OF NOW. DON'T ARGUE OVER STUPID **** LIKE THIS. I COULD HAVE A 1GHZ P3 W/512MB RAM AND A 9600 PRO AND STILL PLAY ALL CURRENT GAMES. IT DOESN'T MATTER!

By the way, I prefer AMD.

Yah...but think about this apex when choosing. Will pentium give me enough of a speed difference worth for the money. BEcause take for example 2800+ and the pentium 4 2.8ghz. It would be a tight call. Although the pentium would most likley beat it in benchmarking tests. Thats what I think. I think intel does not offer enough speed noticeability for the money increasement between the 2 processors. my PERSONAL PREFERANCE would be the amd but hey, thats just me.

deadguy...calm it on the intel bias
just cause u like it doesnt mean its better
i have an intel P4 2.66 GHz n it works great but i still cant say that its better than the AMD when its proven that they are bout the same and AMD's can multitask better

You know what I think? I think that anyone who takes offense to things said on internet forums, definitely computer tech forums, needs to go out and get a life. Damn, is this all you guys do?

Whether you get top of the line AMD or Intel, they will both give you more than enough power for the next two years. Enough said.
