I've got a bunch of old parts laying around and I'm going to build a junk desktop. But I still care about the speed of the thing. I'm going to be putting Windows 7 32bit onto this system.

That being said I have two CPUs that I can use. I've got an Athlon 3800+ X2 (@ 2.0GHz).....or...... Intel Pentium 4-HT 520/521 series (@ 2.8GHz)

Either of these CPUs are going to be paired with an Nvidia GeForece 9800GT, as well as 2GB of DDR2 RAM (@667MHz).

So which would be better?

the Athlon 3800+ X2 is marginally faster and will run new games without bottlenecking the 9800gt
