I am planning to put together a computer. I had SOME experience previously, but that was done without doing any research at all.
Now I've come to the first critical question: "Which processor to use, and How fast?"
I have been using Intel for almost 15 yrs, and I haven't had any experience with AMD, so now I've decided it's time to give AMD a shot for a lower cost solution.
I'm looking for an AMD processor that is about as fast as Intel's 2.8-3.0 Ghz (performance-wise).
Just to let you all know, I know nothing about AMD processors, so please be considerate and throw me with some constructive suggestions
. To be honest, I don't even know what are the differences between Athlon XP, Athlon 64, or Sempron.
Your help would be greatly appreciated!
