    What Processor is better for running multiple programs at the same time, a Pentium 4 or AMD 64? My friend has $600 to spend on a motherboard, processor and memory. He's gonna run music programs like Reason and Fruitloop (He's a DJ) and we just wants to make sure he gets the best bang for his buck.

    I'm not trying to make a AMD vs Pentium Thread... just want to know what's the best chip for what he wants to do. :wiggle:

    I know there's only so much you can do with $600. I mean he's not going to end up with the greatest machine. Just trying to find out what would work the best at that price.

    i'm not saying he can't build a good machine for that, just saying he's not going to build a current processor dual-proc machine for $600. :)
