Processor prefenece

  bobbychariot 17:12 04 May 2009

I'm currently looking at getting a new pc, but ma wondering over which cpu to go for, the two options i'm looking at are a AMD Phenom II X4 940 orIntel Core 2 Quad Q9650 Processor.
Can anyone give any advice or opinion over the merits of both, and which gives the best performance

In the long running battle between AMD and Intel and the quest for performance, Intel are currently winning (in my opinion!)

The X4 is a good processor though and good all round performance, however, the Intel chip tends to work better with the majority of applications.

The Q9650 is significantly more expensive though.
