AMD or intel

Database and Cad application, sounds intel to me, I have AMD and it is for my gaming shops only but I use intel at home. It is because intel's specialty is in multi tasking. AMD can do multi tasking also but Intel the best for multi tasking. If you are out of budget I think you can go for AMD the Cheapest Chips in the market today.

Alokn This is tricky and I tell you you would have hard times asking others about this. It would be like 48: 52 in favor of whichever processor. That means it's difficult to choose. For home use however you can go for AMD, which is a little, very marginally little less expensive that Intel. I have AMD processor in my laptop and Intel in my office. I hardly can feel any difference. So, just go for any one that you feel to choose. You can close your eyes and pick a chit. *laughs*
