I am planning to purchase a new computer but would appreciate input on which is the best processor for me.
I know Core 2 is the best but I donít do any gaming and wonder if I need one. I also can not get DSL for my Internet hook up because of where I live. Maybe some day it will be available here. I do spend a great deal of time probably too much) on the Internet.
I use my computer for word processing, spreadsheets, record keeping, digital photography, DVD watching, and maintaining my homepage. I currently own a Presario 6410NX with:
Processor: AMD Athlon XP2000+ 1.67 GHz
Frontside Bus Speed: 200/266 MHz
Processor Architecture: PGA462 Socket A
Chipset: Via KM266 8235
RAM: 512 MG of RAM.
I have a friend that has a Dell with a Pentium 4 and 512 MG of RAM. It really runs much faster than mine.
There are so many Pentiums out there I donít know which is best other than core 2. The same is true for AMD processors. Which is best and what do you think someone with my usage needs?
Happy Veteran's Day Vets.
