    go on Pricewatch.com and look for an Athlon XP processor. I have the XP 3000+ @ 400 mhz FSB, and its down to about $200. I do alot of gaming, but even on the PCMark04 I do exteremly well on the benchmarks.

    AMD has great performace and will cost you less, even though AMD isn't strong on memory bandwith.

    AMD is fine, not necessarily better than Intel. but I do agree AMD is better than Intel in gaming wise.

    if you don't want a computer that costs you much, AMD suits you
    but if you want a better performance in video editing, i suggest you to use Intel (800Mhz,HT and Dual DDR)

    you can't use dual processors on 32bit cpus, well the pentium 2 xeons were an exception.

    Intel is good 3.0 and on.
    AMD is good below that.
    The only way AMD is better is the 64 bit but not many things support 64bit so its kind of useless

    Large HDD required and video capture software. In Xp and I think 2000 you can specify the amout of Ram as Win 98 maxxed out at 512Mb. DDR Ram is the way to go and a fast processor.

    I'd go with Intel, and it's feature to slow down processing when it's getting hot is quite nifty... my AMD got toasted due to heat... which I think won't happen to Intel CPUs...

    As a matter of fact, I can honestly say that my AMD is great! :thumbsup:

    But it does requires good air conditioning...

    no need to make the choice between amd and pentium,i've got them both fitted to my asus a7v266.
    As long as you fit a ati radeon 8500 to your modem you'll find that it will run perfect.
    I've never looked back and the quality of my desktop icons are the best ever.

    Maybe I'm out of the loop here... but what video card do you have exactly? Is your "Radeon 64mb" a Radeon 9500 64mb or which chipset?

    About the CPUs, I'd put my money on AMD right now. Sure, Intel has HT, but you're going to pay for it. Though, your 2500+ seems like it should be doing a good job... nevertheless, you probably don't want to upgrade to an Athlon 64 with an Athlon 2500+. Also, about your sound card, I also recommend the Sound Blaster Live 5.1, which is I believe the cheapest Sound Blaster card (and will be quite fine for any non-intensive audio stuff).

    Good luck!

    I would bet my bottom dollar that your 10 gig hd is your problem. you need to get a new hd, whatever size you want as long as it runs at 7200 rpm's and has an 8mb cache.
