Choice of 2 processors - which one ?

  supernovae 23:50 27 Jan 2007

I have a choice of two processers for my new PC - any opinions on which is best?

Either AMD Athlon Live 64 X2 Dual Core 5000+

Or Intel Viiv Core 2 Duo E6300

Thanks Howard, but unfortunately the 6300 is not listed - only the 6400 and above.

Any other opinions / views etc please ?

Performance wise you'd be hard pressed to tell them apart. The E6300 differs from the E6400 only in having slightly lower clock speed, so looking at the THG charts I think they'd be more or less the same. The E6300 will run cooler, consume less power, and will be quieter with the stock cooler.

What use will you be putting the pc to? Any serious gaming?
