i have been using p2 and p3 upto 500mhz processor with 512 mb pc100 RAM and 80 gb seagate 7200 hd. my requirements are working with graphics like adobe photoshop corel draw flash, office documents, net surfing with multiple simultaneous downloads. i want to open many a file simultaneously --- multitasking. but my current systems run very slow when i go for the tasks mentioned above. i do not want to go for games but need prompt response from my machine for the above mentioned tasks. budget restraint is there as well and i want to select between p4 or celeron. please guide me for all the necessary combinations ie processor mobo ram etc.

thanx

If your on a budget why go for Intel???? I'd get a AMD they are cheaper and do the job just as well.

From my own experience even the budget range AMD's (Semprons) out perform Intel Celeron's.

Multitasking and graphics work is the textbook case for a dual-core processor. I'd recommend AMD's X2 processors if it weren't for the fact that they are a bit expensive for someone on a tight budget.

THAKS GENTLEMEN but would you be kind enough to highlight the reasons for going for AMD instead of p4 or celeron -- would not there be any software issues
by change of the processor and motherboard

also what exactly would you recommend as a combination mobo proc and ram considering my requirements

would you give me some links where i can see the detail tech information for comparison of these systems to make my choice easy
