Hail to the Victors
I'm simply out of the game.
Built my own system 6 years ago...and I got a new PC at work with Windows 7 and I'm having fun with computers again.
I've got no interest in building another or upgrading mine...
So...I'm looking at two PCs, both Windows 7 64 bit.
I do NOT game on the computer. I will be doing some ametuer video editing from the race track, kid's school activities, etc. Nothing too intense.
I'm looking at two PCs with more space than I could ever need (750GB drives) and 4GB of RAM.
I can get the Core 2 Quad 8300 @ 2.5GHz for 50 dollars more than an AMD Athlon II X2 215 @ 2.70 GHz.
Both have identical specs other than that....512MB dedicated video memory, RAM, HDD space, outputs, etc.
For what I do (Internet, Email, Office, light picture editing and light video editing...) is it worth the extra 50 clams for the Intel quad core vs. the AMD Dual core?
I have no interest or time in building my own. I'm taking the old man out and buying a preassembled with 7 loaded on it (although I'm sure I'll do a clean wipe and install...lol)
What say you??
