    so, girlfriend is doing a minor upgrade to her family's computer.. she is buying ram, mobo, cpu .... ram and mobo are set just deciding on the cpu

    would it be better to get an:
    1. AMD Athlon 64 3000+ Orleans 1.8ghz --or--
    2. Intel Celeron D 347 Cedar Mill 3.06ghz

    both cpu's are current socket types (am2 / 775) but the amd setup will end up being $15 cheaper.

    My thought was that the AMD would perform better or at least the same. Opinions on which to get? (and the computer isn't really used for more than just word/internet/solitaire type games)

    If she has a video card make sure the new motherboard has on board video or compatible graphics slot.

    Also if you go Intel make sure the motherboard can be upgraded to Core 2 Duo
