Hi, have to buy a pc with computers at home initiative, have to use PC world unfortunately! Can't decide which is preferable for under 1000 quid. Advent T9306 or Compaq SR1729. Advent uses pentium 4 650 with 2048mb RAM and 360Gb hard drive with ATI Radeon X600 graphics description. The Compaq uses Intel Pentium D 920 Dual core, has 1024Mb RAM ,300 Gb hard drive. Please note i am NOT into gaming. More editing home videos, surfing internet,downloading and burning music/film etc. Which will be more efficient for this? Thanks so much .

I would go dual core for the future. Both would be excellent but dual core is the future and some say will be needed to get the best from Vista when it comes. If you are running more than one process at atime then it will also assist there as well. Click on dual core demo. click here
