Good morning - Can someone please tell me how I find out which of these two processors is the fastest and the most powerful - they are an "AMD Quad Core 965 Phenom 2" and an "Intel i5-750 Quad Core 2.66Hz 8MB" - I find it very difficult to judge these things, as I do with Graphics Cards. - If there are tables published somewhere I would love to know. - Thank you for your time - Ian

Click the link then click "2009 Desktop CPU Charts" then select a test say "3DMark Vantage 1.0.2" then select your two CPU's and compare.

Unfortunately 3D Graphics is not the be all of a CPU speed, it depends what you want to use your computer for. Without looking at the above site most likely a Intel CPU will be best for 3D graphics
