I was just shopping around for a new machine and the only thing I am
left to decide on is which one of these processors I should choose.
Today I almost bought a very nice HP Pavillion T680 with a AMD Athlon 64
It was only when I got home, I learnt that 3200+ doesn't mean 3.2ghz and
that this processor is actually 2.0ghz.
This has now put me in a confusing situation to whether or not I buy this
machine or go for a Pentium 4 3.2ghz or faster.
Does the Athlon 64 3200+ actually show the same performance as a Pentium
What would the readers of this recommend for me to do?
I use my computer mainly for Internet related tasks, Communication, MS
Office; but recently I have started wanting to use it for video editing and
using Flight Simulator 2004, which I have bought but hardly used as my AMD
Duron 800mhz with 192MB RAM doesn't work too well with! lol
Thanks for any help.
