AMD Vs Intel processor
by swellmela - 3/9/12 4:57 PM
I have to replace my 8 year old Dell desktop soon. now using Windows XP, SP3. I Will use Windows 8.
Pricing a new computer, among other things, one thing seems to be outstanding that determines the price of a replacement machine. It is the apparent difference in cost between the AMD and the INTEL i3, i4,or i5. The price difference seems to be about $100.00 or more if I look at Intel i5 or i7.( i hope i didn't goof on the Intel product #'s).
For my general household use with no gaming, only light photo work, email and web surfing, email and use of Ms Office, will it matter much which I buy? A computer with the AMD is a lots cheaper. Will it be similar or would I see a great difference between using AMD Vs Intel' Thanks Mel
