How much of a difference is there between an Intel P4 3ghz vs an AMD Dual Core processor?
I'm considering building a system to replace my dell deminsion 3000. I've had the dell since december of 2004 and it's been a great system over the years. When I bought it I didn't think I'd need another computer for years. Guess I was right. Honestly I probably don't need a newer system. I just repaced the 160gb hard drive with a 500gb and added another 1gb of ram. I'm pretty happy with it at the moment. It's running fast as ever. However I use photoshop cs3 and do a lot with video editing. If I can build something that will blow my P4 away then I'm more than willing to do so. Would any gains be worth the money spent building a new system?
Thanks in advance for any and all help it's greatly appreciated!
