  1. Thanks for the info New Age. I ended up going with the AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ dual-core - 2.4GHz processor and 2GB DDR2-533MHz dual channel SDRAM... that should keep me busy for a while!
  2. Since you stated your D drive is 99% empty, I doubt this is true in your case. However, I've noticed more and more manufacturer's are partitioning the hard drive into a C and D, and then instead of including System Restore CD's with your computer, they're storing all the restore files on the D drive. I personally have 560GB of hard drive space (one 160GB and one 400GB drive). Instead of having two HUGE drives, I partitioned the 160GB drive into four 40GB drives and 400GB into four 100GB drives. This is just a way to organize your data for storage, security, performance or whatever you like. I have one drive for my digital pictures, one for MP3's, one for programs, etc... Then, I created a Windows script to run every day at 5am that will copy any new digital pictures on my F drive over to my H drive (which is solely used for backup). Let partitioning be your friend.
  3. Thanks for the quick reply! I probably should have mentioned that I don't do much gaming (if at all). Besides using the computer for basic, every day type stuff (email, web, MS Office, etc...) I will be using it for photo editing (PhotoShop CS2) and video editing (Ulead VideoStudio 10). I've had AMD's in the past and haven't had any problems, but I just want to be sure this processor will do what I need it to as opposed to the Core 2 Duo. Ron
  4. I'm looking to buy a new pc and I've heard a lot about the Intel Core 2 Duo processor. However, the price difference is a huge jump when compared to the AMD dual-core. I'm in the process of debating between these two processors and was looking for some advice from the hardware gods... AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ dual-core - 2.4GHz vs Intel? Core?2 Duo Processor E6400 (2MB L2 Cache,2.13GHz,1066 FSB) Any help you guys (and girls) can provide would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a lot! Ron
