Default Intel or Amd for naturally speaking and other extensive programs.

I am going to be building a computer for a friend of mine who is a quad. It will have the speech program naturally speaking which is very memory intensive and also several others. It will have a special kind of mic and some other things. Would it make a difference the type of cpu for these things? Would one work better than the other?

So you are saying intel over amd64 for use with this type of memory intensive stuff. Are you familiar with naturally speaking professional.

I would say Intel would be better for this, Intel tend to be better for applications, although there wouldn't be a huge difference between them and AMD.

If it's memory intensive then just make sure you get enough RAM, maybe 1GB. Dual channel is preferred.

I have naturally speaking on a p4 2.8 laptop w/ 512 MB of RAM. It runs fine. I don't know how an AMD would perform, but I do know that the p4 runs great w/ that application.
