Ok as you know i am buliding me a computer. I have already got the most part done dvd burner antec earthwatts 500w psu etc...... Now i am trying to decide which would be better amd or intel i've got a budget of around 150$ that im sticking to for a cpu, mobo, and ram. I don't game all i do is encode video and i would like for it to be fast. with the occasional HD movie. Now here is what i am considering on intel: Intel Pentium E2180 Allendale 2.0GHz ECS GF7050VT-M LGA 775 GeForce7050 / 610i Micro ATX Intel Motherboard WINTEC AMPX 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 OR WINTEC AMPO 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 667 And the AMD: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ Brisbane 2.5GHz WINTEC AMPX 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 MSI K9VGM-V AM2 VIA K8M890 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail And the video card i am debating on all i want is a video card for HD video and iTunes visualizer. Here is a major consideration but im still open for suggestions. ZOTAC ZT-86TEG2P-FSR GeForce 8600 GT 256MB I am open for suggestion on any and all.
