Pentium 4 or Athlon 64 computer.
Good question as i sit typing away knowing from the past,the views and the reasons members and i preferred one type of brand to another.Some very valid reasons including value for money and speed etc with the AMD processor.
I also sit here listening to my system which is running perfectly well and reflect on all other systems i have owned.Which possibly brings me to the point of this long outdrawn reply.
"LISTENING" and that is the problem after ten years of AMD with only one INTEL in-between. Unless the AMD 64 and what goes with it as a package has quieted down,my choice would be the Pentium 4 No matter what the answers are :)
"My" ringing ear-drums are telling me this. A bit to late too.
Maybe not the answer you need or expected?
