    Dear Friends,
    I am planning of buying a new PC in the month of Sep. So I went to market for survey to know which processor is the best for an average user( games+applications etc)
    I am not in a position to decide which could be the best either intel or AMD. Some of them are saying that amd doesn't have long life some say intel doesn't perform well as compared to AMD.

    If u have the answer can u give me the configuration for my PC ( Motherboard, Processor, Ram)

    PM me your Budget, I will post U a config which will be best for U, usr mention what U intend to do with that PC primariliy

    AMD 64 beats Intel 2.8 HT, but rite now with the choices U have I would sa go for P4 with HT it will beat AthlonXP 2800+ easily

    i couldnt get my hands on the athlon xp 2800 anywhere
    apparently they are hard to come by
    it was either the 2600 (33 mhz) or the amd 64 ...
    and considerin my requirements in the budget i had i went for amd 2600 ...
    anyways according to me going for a 64 bit right now is still pretty much useless !!!
    maybe in a year ! specially for india !
    anyways ... like i said .. i made the shift to amd (after a lot of pondering) ... and god damn its good ... i recommend only amd from now on !

    64 bit processors going cheap these days - buy the Athlon 64 2800+, you wont regret it. Its cost may be around 7.5-8k.

    Go for the AMD 64 2800+ its a very good processor much better than the Intel 2.8 HT. Infact its performance it close or maybe even better than Intel 3.0 HT. Its a budget priced processor but with an enthusiast level performace.Go for the Asus K8V mobo along with it.
    I have the same processor and mobo combo and i am very happy with it.

    My p4 2.8 ht works fine. its great! I don't have to worryabout its temp and I also don't have an AC in my room. I have 865 chipset and 256 MB ddr 400. Adobe Photoshop opens up in just 5 seconds.

    Hey if photoshop opens in 5 secs , its only 33% due to processor and most of the reason is your HDD :p cant compare that ways, well if you do want to compare them try the water effects in photoshop , convert divx to mpeg . RAW CPU power. thats the way to benchmark a CPU .

    Instead of 32-bit AMD 2800+ go for Intel 2.8 GHz HT (Prescott)
