Comparison- My pc to one in store

By RineEater

  1. Here's mine:

    AMD Athalon 64 4000+
    1 Gb RAM
    200GB Hard Drive

    One in Store:
    AMD Athalon 6000+ Dual-core Processor
    3 Gb RAM
    500GB Hard drive
    Windows Vista Home Premium
    Lexmark all-in-one printer

    Is the one in the store really that much better and is it worth buying at that price. My pc is a gateway, and I like gateways better than anything else (including Dell). Here's another one- however it's an HP:

    Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q6600
    3 GB RAM
    640GB Hard drive
    Windows Vista Home Premium
    WIFI LAN, wireless keyboard and mouse
    TV tuner (doubt i'd use it)

    Can anyone help me out and let me know if either of these two are worth it at the price given and if they are better by a large enough gap than my pc to warrant buying them?

    This all depends on what your computer is going to be used for

    Gaming ? Go for the Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q6600

    Multimedia ? Go for the AMD Athalon 6000+ Dual-core Processor

    Basic Usuage ? Stay with the AMD Athalon 64 4000+

    I am only referring to your supplied computer specs

    Definitely for gaming. Though I only have an Nvidia 8600GT for graphics. It just annoys me that the computers out now are so much better than the one I have now, and the one I have now is only just over a year old and already not as good as some of the cheaper ones in the sale papers. The thing is I didn't pay for the one I have now- my brother got it. So this would kind of be like buying my own pc for the first time- if I get one.

    the intel one would be better for gaming, and multimedia. It all depends on how much you want to spend. That quad core is nice though.
