Looking for a new PC or Home Build

Hi could some please please direct me as to which PC Specs I require.

I do multitasking (my task bar has groups of files open constantly eg at the moment I have 8 applications open...

Please note that I am looking for a serious machine to upgrade from a 3.2GHz p4 with HT.

Could someone also explain about dual core processors and AMD chips eg 4400 - what does this mean ? etc

Thanks :D

the dual core are simply 2 processors built onto the 1 chip. When software is written for this it will be quite quick. AMD are the other maker to Intel and their nos. are what they consider them equivalent to.

So a 4400 they consider this to be as powerful as intel 4.4GHz ?

So are AMD more reliable ?

What would you advise Intel or AMD ?

I don't know about reliability but AMD seem to win most of the performance comparisons these days.
