AMD Vs Intel, Can it be affordable and good to?
Basically I am upgrading a machine on a slight budget, and I have been looking on newegg and found this
Newegg.com - AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor 3.0GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor ADX250OCGMBOX
Its considerably cheaper than the intel duel core processors, and if I get this then I can upgrade my hard drive as well with my limited budget.
However I know very little about AMD processors, and I really don't want to end up with a lemon.
As far as the specs go for the machine I am upgrading... Its quite terrible, I have already gave its a new PSU, Graphics Card, and upped the Ram, and the CPU is really bottle-necking the performance.
OS: Windows Vista Basic x86
CPU: 1.6GHz AMD 64 x2 "although cpu-z reports the processor is only clocked at 1.1 GHz"
Hard Drive: 150GB
Graphics: nVidea 8600gt
