Hi all

If this thread is in the wrong section I apologize and please feel free to remove it.

In my first post to this board I descirbed a problem with my old pc overheating.
I've recently got my hands on another pc, slightly newer I believe, and am wondering which one would best suit my needs. Keep in mind my old ones fan problem has been fixed.

I browse the internet, type up things in microsoft word, and watch dvds. Watching dvd's being the most important.

Computer one -
Vista home premium installed
Scores a 1 on vista experience index, Graphics and gaming graphics both being one. Processor is 4.9 and ram is 5.6, hard disk is 5.6.
Vga graphics adapter. VERY STANDARD, maybe below standard?. Plays dvd's well though.
Intel ® pentium ® d cpu 3.40 ghz 3.40 ghz
Memory ram: 1470 MB
32 bit operating system

Computer two -
Windows vista home premium installed. Scores a 3 on windows experience index. Processor 4.7, Ram 5.8, Graphics 3.4, gaming graphics 3, Hard drive 5
Base processor
Athlon 64 X2 (:blink: 3600+ 1.9 GHz (65W)
2000 MT/s (mega transfers/second)
Socket AM2
Chipset
GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
Motherboard
Manufacturer: ECS
Motherboard Name: MCP61PM-HM
HP/Compaq motherboard name: Nettle2-GL8E
Hard drive
160 GB SATA 3G (3.0 Gb/sec)
7200 rpm
Video Graphics
Integrated graphics
Sound/Audio
High Definition 8-channel audio
ALC 888S chipset
Network (LAN)
Integrated 10/100 Base-T networking interface
This is the pc here - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...product=3453790


So far Im leaning towards number 2, but the tech guy I was speaking to said the amd procesors are no good and do not run vista well at all. So Im not too sure, any opinions on this would be greatly appreciated.

Thankyou.

I had a Toshiba Laptop with an Athlon CPU and it ran very well. I think sufficient memory will help vista run good, I'd say about 1.5 to 2 gbs. I would go with option 2.
