Pentium or AMD? Which do you prefer and why?

I'm trying to figure out what I want for my new computer. I'm not a big gamer, but would likely be playing some now that I'll have a new system. I'll probably be copying DVDs more.

I just don't know which processor technology to go with. I'm not looking to build the ultimate system either. Just something good enough to bring my up-to-date.


I'm sure this has been discussed before, but the only thread I could find was almost 4 years old.

Probably not the best thing to say if you want to keep a thread open. But anyway...

I have always had AMD.

I've had a 500mhz K6
1000mhz Duron
1700+
And now a 3000+ A64.

So I'd go with AMD. They are cheaper and faster than Intels. My work computer is a 3 month old HP 3.2 ghz P4 and my 1.9ghz A64 smokes it.

So, are we not supposed to talk about DVD burners either?

I didn't say I was going to start my own DVD piracy operation.
