I'm in the process of choosing all my spec and requirements for building a new pc.
Given the choice, and despite the cost, which one of these would you go for ?.

3.2GHz Intel Pentium D 940

2x 2048KB L2 Cache

Socket Type - Socket 775

Level 2 Cache - 2x 2048KB

or..................

AMD Athlon 64 3500+ 64-bit

The Intel is £162 GBP = $299 USD

The AMD is £117 GBP = $216 USD

but as said, the cost does'nt matter. Just to add, I'll also be using.........

2 x 250 GB h/d

2 GB RAM
