Which desktop?

Hi everyone,

Being out of the computer savvy world for a while, I am not too hot on computer specs.

thanks to everyone for helping me find a desktop.

Can someone tell me which is the best out of these three processors - I have nailed it down to 3 which are around the same price?

Athlon 64 X2 3800+
AMD Sempron 3500+
Intel Pentium D 820 Dual Core Processor 2.8GHz

All have the same specs - 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD, DVD-RW etc...

The athlon 64x2 3800+...are you thinking about the Acer from Comet?...a good buy in my opinion...don't forget the 3.5% quidco cashback
In most of applications, especially games:
Athlon 64 X2 3800+>Pentium D 820>AMD Sempron 3500+

For encoding, generally:
Pentium D 820 > Athlon 64 X2 3800+>AMD Sempron 3500+

However, you have to consider the performance of the MB and Graphic Card. They may have much bigger influence on the performance and the stability of the machine
