I am building a gaming computer for the first time. Because of my age i have a limited amount of money to build it, which consequently means i have a choice between an 'INTEL PENTIUM 4 945 DUAL CORE 3.4GHz (800MHz FSB)' or an 'INTEL CORE 2 DUO E6400 2.13GHz (1066MHz FSB)'

Which one should i choose?

stefan0506,

If you can afford the Core 2 Duo (I wish I could!!), go for it. It will outperform the Pentium by about 25%, all else being equal.

Regards,

Felix
