  1. What cpu manufacture has the best cpu for under a 200.
    I am look for a cpu for a new computer that is going to be for work no gaming just editing video school work encoding that type of stuff. I was thinking i would want high multitasking ability and also decent speed. My budget for the cpu is 200 for further info on the system I plan on 2gigs of ram and a decent motherboard probably with onboard vid and gig ethernet. Any suggestions for the cpu would be helpful my two primary would be the Pentium D 930 pressler or the Amd venice 3800+.

    As of right now I would go with a Intel Pentium D for $200-.
