When you upgrade, won't you just be adding to the machine?

To answer whether you should get an AMD 64 or Pentium 4, it depends on what you're using the computer for. The AMD 64s are faster and better for games (usually cheaper too), while Pentiums are generally better for video editing and that type of stuff. Hope I helped.
