    that is the one i have now and love it. I do not know much about the AMD processors but from what friends have told me they are very good for people who multi task and use graphical programs.

    If the AMD was a faster model such as a AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ AM2 Dual Core, or a AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ AM2 Dual Core would the Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 Conroe Dual Core still win?

    Well its that I've already got a computer with a 4600+ and I figured it was faster, but my friend has a computer with a Intel E6300, and the computers are basiclly the same except for that. But mine has 2 gigs of ram and his only has 1 gig. But after encoding DVDs using Nero on both of our computers, mine ran at around 65 frames, and his ran at about 90. But mine is faster when using DVD shrink. So I was just wondering if I should have got the E6300 or E6400 over my 4600+.

    Yea, I have no clue why mine is so slow. If my computer should be the faster one all around. Better yet, how do you get 480 with a Penitum D (not that I know much about Pentium D), but I thought AMD's Dual Cores Beat Intel hands down in the benchmak test there.

    true dude but i said recoding not encoding a movie to a dvd encoding a dvd i probably get 160 tough it depends on the ram timming alot from what i experienced

    I suppose I'll try recoding just to see what I get and compare. I don't think I've ever recoded anything using nero actually.

    Edit: Well I can't give an exact number of frames because it kept jumping really bad, but it did take 3 minutes and 34 seconds to finish, and I never recode anything so I don't know how good or bad that is.

    Cheaper as in quality? Because it is less expensive to buy comparable AMD CPUs. elokito has obviously never played with a PC using an AMD cpu. As far as speed goes between the AMD and Intel CPUs you are looking at, the AMD is much faster. When AM2 CPUs came out, intel almost shatt their pants because it was totally unexpected from AMD. And besides, the worlds fastest PC was built with an AMD cpu.(even though it was insanely overclocked) I guarantee you will enjoy that AMD over the intel cpu.

    PS. Stay away from Socket 939 CPUs. AMD already stopped producton on them. So there won't be much upgrading in the future if you were to get one. Just some advice.

    I don't know if you can say that AMD is that much better than intel. If it was a comparison between AMD dual core and Pentium D then I would deffinatly say that AMD is much better. But I think the Core 2 Duo is probablly faster than the AMD. It seems the Core 2 Duos run very efficiently. No offence but I think you just like Intel alot.

    It is really going to come down to personal choice, people are going to sit here for days going back and forth on the AMD VS Intel thing.
    I know people who build PC all the time and each prefers one or the other for their own personal reasons.
    But if you do get the core2duo i really reccomend you step up from the 1.86 E6300 to the 2.13 E6400
    I have mine overclocked about 10% and running 2.5GHz on both cores, so 5.0GHz total. Which will be plenty enough to do just about anything most users could want.
