But you can read the CPUCHARTS out on the internet to see how, on average which CPU works best at what benchmark (I purposely leave this for you.)
Your comment is interesting. Let's hope you look for those CPUCHARTS now.
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3Ghz LGA775 Processzor vs AMD Athlon II X2 250 3GHz AM3
I read that the first one is more expensive but I don't see why.. Both are duo core, 3GHz..
The FSB is higher for AMD..
