#1 you mentioned that you were a gamer i would recommend that you build you're own customized pc or just got the new dells optimized for VISTA!
Ok, I'm finally upgrading from my family's outdated 1.8ghz celeron. After months of savihng, i can finally afford something decent.
I'm just unsure about processors. What is it exactly i should be looking for, to decide what's fast and what isn't. I've been looking at clock speeds and caches and making decisions based on those numbers, but i'm sure there'd be much more to it.
Most dual core Intels have 3.2ghz clock speeds and 2X 2MB caches, whereas the middle-of-the-road AMD's are 2.4ghz with X 512kb caches, and AMD is supposibly better, how's that work? So really, what numbers should i be looking at..
I'm a bit of a gamer, i often run dual monitors and multitask. Say watching a movie and trying to move large files around simaltaneously, nothing professional though. I want something that isn't going to become obsolete as soon as Vista is released, so if anyone can suggest a processor, that'd be cool.
