    how do the AMD X2's and or LIVE chips compare to Intel Core 2 Duo's ?

    the Mrs. is thinking of upgrading from the Dell P.O.S. she bought 5 years ago. I was somewhat of an AMD fan back in my PC days.

    Yeah, I built it right at the beginning of February when Vista came out since my XP machine was about 5 years old. I didn't build it as a high end PC, but as what you might call an upper mid-level (lower high-end?) PC.

    AMD can't compete with Intel on pure power, but unless you are going for a high-end PC there's no reason to pay extra for Intel. You get better $$/speed value with AMD.

    I don't know how they stack up in benchmarks. My Dell laptop with Core 2 Duo seems marginally faster than the AMD running graphical apps, like Oblivion, yet my AMD seems faster for multitasking regular apps. Both systems still run on XP though, so they're not using their full potential.
