I am buying a new rig monday morning(YAY) and i have 2 choices. I am not on a budget but i only want to spend 300 dollars, thats my limit. So lets stick to these 2 choices , just wanted to ask on different forums which is the best choice. Also both rigs has x16 full slots, which is something i wanted, even tho i have no plans to buy a PCIE card anytime soon. But it will be a future option. Anyways, these are my choices and i also have some questions. Choice 1: BRAND NEW) eMachines - 2.4GHz AMD Athlon™ Single-Core Processor LE-1620 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9170835&type=product&id=1218043607320 Choice 2(USED BY SOMEONE WHO HAD IT FOR 2 months at a computer shop Gateway Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 2.50GHz http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicat...&cm_mmc_o=TBBTkwCjCVyBpAgf mwzygtCjCVRqCjCVRq NOTE: He has this same rig used for only $269 dollars ................................................... Questions #1 Is AMD good? I have been a Intel user all my life #2 Pentium Dual Core E5200 2.50GHZ VS AMD Athlon Single-Core Processor LE-1620? #3 If i would buy the brand new AMD LE 1620 2.4GHz , How much VS/FASTER is it compared to my Gateway Intel Pentium III 600MHZ? #4 How much faster is the AMD 2.4GHZ LE 1620 Vs that Celeron D at 3.0ghz i had? #5 I don't care about getting 60fps or more in games, but i do want to get 20-40fps solid with all my games, even tho i am sure i will get around 200 in most games. But say for example, with my P3 i get 15-18fps in Jericho at 1280x1024 all high settings, how much in Jericho with the AMD 2.4GHZ would i get ? Note: Using the 2400HD and 8400gs btw Anyways, thanks.
