How do I judge which of these 4 processors is best

  spot the braincell 12:14 12 Mar 2008

I have 4 options for a new PC and have no idea which to choose so with nothing else to go on I'm asking advice on each main component to see which, if any is better than an other.

The processors in question are:
1) 1.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E4300
2) AMD Athlon X2 Dual Core 3600+ (AM2)
3) Intel ® Pentium® Core 2 Duo Dual-Core Processor E4500
4) Intel Pentium Dual Core E2140
(1.66GHz, 800MHz FSB, 1MB Cache)

They give differing amounts of info, but my inexpert view is that if they advertise it by brand it must mean something to someone, unfortunately I'm not one of those someones!

thanks folks

I'd say the E4500 is the best of your bunch
