Which of these processors is best?

  1. I'm picking out a new computer and needed some input. I'm leaning toward this one- AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core 3600+

    but this one is $20 cheaper- Pentium® D Processor 935 with Dual Core Technology (3.2GHz, 800FSB)
    Is there really a big difference?

    im not quite sure but i think the X2s are better then the Pentium Ds. The X2s are really cheap right now, i recommend at least going for an X2 4000+ or perhaps slightly higher. Get them while there cheap and still available.

    I'd go with the AMD.

    Thanks guys! One more question- Is 1g really a better deal than 512mb? Is it a performance booster?

    Absolutely. 1024MB>512MB

    Obviously. Things run smoother.
