I'm about to start upgrading my computer. Got a camcorder for Christmas and want something able to cope with a lot of the video editing software out there.
I was having a brief chat with an old mate on this topic last night as I'm after some advice about what proceeor to go for. Now the one thing I can't understand is this - Out of the two processors below everyone tells me that the 2nd is definately the better of the two. What I can't get my head round is that every site I look at puts these up at the same price as each other. If chip 2 is so superior to chip 1, why on earth are they the same price.
1. Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz (Prescott) Socket 478 800FSB 1MB Cache
2. Intel Pentium 630 3.0Ghz Skt775 BTX Fsb800 2Mb Cache
A few people have also suggested that I'd be better off with AMD, but forget that for the time being.
Why are these chips the same price; and
Why is chip 2 better?
