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
