Nice spec :) Feedback on these systems with AMD would be good compared to Intel...

:pirate:

These are the new AM2 processors, they blow the older Intel Pentium D processors our of the water but Intel's new Core Duo processor is faster for 32 bit operation. In 64 bit, the processors are closely matched.

Just a hint guys. If anyone is looking to get this deal I would spec it with the 2 x 1gb modules instead of 4 x 512mb. Simply because this should enable the board to run the memory in "dual channel" mode, thus increasing the performance a little bit.

Thanks for the useful feedback you two :D

I'm reminding you of these AMD offers from Dell as they are about the best of the bunch from Dell this week.
I think we have been a little spoiled for choice over the last week or so and Dell have today increased prices on many units by up to £100 and in return given us little, the usual culprit is the free double memory which at Dells inflated price (nothings free) leaves them little room for price adjustments downwards. There are selective TFT upgrades and free shipping but overall last weeks pricing holds or is raised.
I am hoping they will come to their senses and restructure during the day, if they do I will surely let you know.

It will run in dual channel mode with 5x512MB as well although I'd agree with the recommendation for 2x1GB as it gives some room for expanding.

Hi all:-D ,

Forgive my ignorance but which of the 2 deals would offer better performance? Overall would the 2gb of ram balance out the slower processor?

Also, what is the difference between the 2 versions of the processor,
"AMD® Live™ Technology - AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual Core processor 5000+ add £0.00
AMD® Athlon™ 64 X2 Processor 5000+ [Included in Price]"?


I'm fine with the size of the hard drive, but having not had a AMD based pc before I'm a little unsure as to which one to go for.

Cheers:thumbsup:

I'm with you weehawken, things have moved on a lot since I used AMD though I am told that the performance levels of AMD against Intel are now about the same.
Maybe someone with recent AMD interest can contribute :)

Welcome to HotUKDeals weehawken and Thanks for the post :)

I don't know which is best peformance wise, although I would expect the second offer to be, because of the specifications.

However, the first has XP Professional and the second has XP Home [not sure if that would influence your choice]. The RAID set up and 5000+ processor probably gives a better performance [I think :|].

Not much help, but that's how it looks to me :-D

I'm fairly sure both processors are exactly the same, as far as I'm aware 'AMD Live' is just branding similar to Intel's Viiv.

2x1gmb is faster than 4x512mb; Google for the benchmarking tests :)
