Processor choice?

  Daxsimus 21:05 29 Jun 07

Hi guys,

Which of the following two would you recommend?
AMD® Live Technology - Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5600+


Intel® Viiv™ Core™ 2 Duo E6600 Processor (2.4GHz,1066MHz,4MB cache)

Thanks for the help

core 2 duo is best.

I agree with citadel.......Core 2 Duo has the edge.


Both of the processors you mention will cope with anything you throw at them with ease.If there is a significant price advantage with the AMD cpu,it is still worth considering.

Thanks guys.
Is there a considerable difference between the Core 2 duo E6600 and the E6700. Worth upgrading or not?
