Its all opinion... right now, Intel's double core processors are probably the best, but they're so expensive that I don't think they're worth it. I perfer AMD... but thats only cause I've used them my whole life. But like I said, Its all opinion. I would research and find out what one would do whatever you are going to do on your pc better.

If the computer's just being used for basic computer uses, a Pentium 4, Celeron D would be good and extremly cheap. AMD Athlon 64's would be just as good.

Reliability wise, there isn't a difference between AMD and Intel. The differences are in performance, price, and value. That being said, Celeron D is absolutely horrible. It is cheap, but painfully slow.

If you're not looking for anything special, then I'd suggest that you shop for service. Most any processor that you get will last the lifetime of the PC - so shopping for something that you don't have to worry about is a plus.

I've owned an intel, amd and a celeron D. All have done just fine, and I believe that if you're just going to do the "typical" everyday computer use, like browsing the internet, viewing the photos that people send you on email, the occassional card game or online games (flash, java etc.), word processing (writing letters with MS Word) and viewing videos, than a Celeron D will do you just fine. If you're going to get into games, then you might want to go with something faster, like an intel or amd, and a good graphics card.

TBH, I've got a celeron D (2.93 ghz 533mhz fsb) and it works fine. I play some high end games too, like farcry, LOTR, CnC Zero Hour, guild wars and F.E.A.R. all in the highest settings, and my computer doesn't lag. Of course, I have a good graphics card too.

Depending on your need, you'll have to make an educated decision :thumbsup: For people who just want to browse the internet and do basic, non graphic intensive or 3D intensive programs, I usually recommend that they get a cheap Dell for about $400. It does just fine for what most people do.
