Athlon 2800 versus Pentium 3Ghz - difference?

  User-731D3F8D-D8EB-4CD3-BAC35C722C57B032 22:56 17 Feb 2004

I'm choosing between two Evesham machines: the Axis 2800+MKR click here and the Evolution 3000 Blue Beast

Is there a difference in performance?

Lastly, is this graphics card (128MB DDR ATI Radeon 9800SE All-in-Wonder graphics with TV-out & DVI) any good or is it better to stick to the graphics cards featured in the two machines above?

Many thanks.

u will need to look in mags to track down the differencebetweeb amd and intel ie they will be a chart that will show what amd is equal to and intel chip speed wise.

On the graphics front GET THE ATI RADEON 128 9800 PRO as I have spent the last 3 days reading up and this one rocks. A bit more but it will be worth it. It is the one I am buying with my system and an intel 3.00ghz.

Look here and compare

There will be no noticeable difference.

Is there any difference when you do video encording?

Couple of my friends use video editing/production facilities a lot and they swear by AMD but for no logical reason other then they have always used comoputers with AMD chips.

Are you entirely convinced that you would be able to notice any difference in real time?
