Hi a friend @ work needs a new pc tower,has a budget of about £200, should he go for intel or amd sempron thanks.

AMD are accessed slightly faster, so a 2ghz Intel processor would be slightly slower than a AMD 1.5ghz processor.

So I would say that AMD is the way to go (and they are also cheaper)

Thanks for the link 007al think i might be building the base unit myself, ive been looking @ the Gigabyte GA-K8VT800 motherboard does anyone know if this is a good stable board & does it take a Sempron 2800 64bit processor ?
