Question on Intel vs ADM

If my 2 major applications are DVD burning and PVR recording, which would I be better off with, Intel 3.6 or FX55 setup? Or should I wait for the dual core ADM processors? I run multiple applications at one time!!

I googled ADM (Archer-Daniels-Midland)Co and I found their stock isn't doing very well.

"Archer-Daniels-Midland Company is engaged in procuring, transporting, storing, processing and merchandising agricultural commodities and products. Its operations are classified into four business segments: Oilseeds Processing, Corn Processing and Agricultural Services. The Company's remaining operations are aggregated and classified as Other. The Oilseeds Processing segment includes activities related to processing oilseeds, such as soybeans, cottonseed, sunflower seeds, canola, peanuts, and flaxseed into vegetable oils and meals principally for the food and feed industries. The Corn Processing segment includes activities related to the manufacture of products used in the food and beverage industry. The Agricultural Services segment buys, stores, cleans and transports agricultural commodities and resells these commodities primarily as feed ingredients and as raw materials for the agricultural processing industry. The Other segment is engaged in milling wheat, corn and milo into flour."

Apparently ADM has taken a turn for the worse and is now using their agricultural technology to make processors for computers? Who knows...

Haha I'm sorry but I couldn't resist. Well if multi-tasking is your thing then definitely go dual-core, no question. AMD or ADM, your preference lol.

that's just what i love about cnet
people have a sense of humor
on most OC'er forums they'd flame him for saying ADM
but here, here we get this wonderful reply

and as to the real question
i'd actually suggest Intel for multi-tasking
Intel's dual core chips are kings at multi-tasking and video encoding
and not so bad in gaming
BUT the AMD Athlon64's are better in gaming (they are like 4% behind in multi-tasking, but it's across the board) i'd say AMD if your saving money though
