    amd athlon x2 640 3.0ghz l2 2mb

    or

    intel pentium g630 2.7ghz l3 3mb

    The Intel in this case. The G630 is a sandy bridge chip, these things are kicking all sorts of ass across AMD's low end line. I normally prefer AMD stuff (not that my sig would show it) but am currently building a machine for my girlfriend and went intel with a G850 (slightly faster version of the G630) because there just isn't an argument to make for the AMD line.

    If your into gaming Toms has a monthly article that they do showing where each processor ranks as of this month. In the cheap category the G630 takes the cake.

    I blame Earthdog and Muddocktor for helping me pick some truly great parts. Thanks guys, now I'm broke and happy. :)

    thanx a lot, for future reference what specs of a cpu should i be looking in terms of comparison?

    because i were to say the amd athlon works faster than the intel pentium because of the higher clock speed

    It's a complicated issue. Generally you'd want to look up several benchmarks that compare the two CPUs you are looking at.

    Processors have different architecture so performance relative to clock varies. [A new architecture ivy bridge @ 3.0GHz will be 2x as fast as pentium 4 @ 3GHz]
