I have always been an Intel user and currently have a P4 3.00 Ghz processor. I would like to upgrade but have ZERO experience with an Athlon processor so I am hoping I can get some user experiences. I was lookinjg at an Athlon X2 4200+ or maybe a 4400+ and would like some idea of what kind of performance increase i can expect over my P4 and any recommendations.



Thanks

A 4400+ is about 500 dollars. I'd go with either the X2 3800+ (Which i've heard is a great overclocker) or a single-core 3700+ (which i personally know is a great overclocker). If you go with a 4400+, then more power to you. I'll certainly be jealous.

By the way, the 4200+ has 2x 512KB L2 cache, the 4400+ has 2x 1MB.

amd is better then intel no doubt. intel may have the higher clock speeds but the arctexter sucks compared to a amd. all that mes for the arctexter is that amds just process the info better intels just do it faster
