intel vs amd(for my parents new comp)
Ok, my parents want a new computer. they want a box, and they want that box to cost no more than $500. Now, they will not be doing any multimedia stuff. they will be using it for business applications(taxes, microsoft word, excel, other business software) i want to know which processor will perform better in these areas (remember, im not looking at multimedia applications.) They want 512mb of ram, a cheap, but mainstream vid card(geforce mx something) nothing impressive on the vid card, but enough to get the job done(they will not be gaming) an 80gb hard drive. winxp pro(or 2000)the os is not included in the price of $500. but i really want to know which processor amd or intel will perform better in business type applications.
