Hi all, Newbie to the forum here!
I am in the market for a new machine. I don’t need anything too spectacular. Anything will be better than the 1.8 ghz single core amd athlon xp I am using currently!
I may play the occasional game (strategy types mainly) and rip the odd dvd to watch elsewhere. There may be a bit of light video editing (again, home movies). Surfing the net and also writing a letter or two.
Can anyone give me their thoughts on these two machines?
Both will coupled with this graphics card:
I am leaning toward the AMD based one, mainly because on paper it looks the better spec. I have read though that that type of processor is unique and unupgradeable. That said, I have never upgraded a processer/ mobo in 20 odd years of messing with a computer (plenty of hard drives, graphics, sound TV and USB cards though!) so I don’t know if that’s a concern.
Can anyone draw a comparison for me?
