AMD or Pentium 4?

  LyricalG 12:16 17 Feb 2003

I am getting a new PC soon, but would just like to know which is better, AMD 2600+ or the P4 2.8, both with 512 DDR RAM, and with 64MB GeForce 4 graphics card, which one is better customised?

all depends on what you are going to use it for and what budget you have. I went for the XP2000+ instead of a P4 2.2 and its fine for my needs. other things to look for are motherboard and HD spec.

there have been various threads on this forum which have covered this topic before, try doing a search for AMD, Intel P4 etc

AMD every time A reliable system & usually cheaper maybe a smidge slower than intel but Intel is good just costs more
