intel what?? last check on my memory (head) i only heard up to p4 thats all. den all dis prescot venice overclocking came i neve tot existed
lolz to all bros who tried to help.. threadstarter is a totally new to computers.. thus give him the brand names and not the code names pls.. i dun think he understand wat's northwood venice or prescott.. just give him brand names like p4 3.0e or amd 3000
Intel was founded in 1968 by Gordon E. Moore (a chemist and physicist) and Robert Noyce (a physicist and co-inventor of the integrated circuit). Intel, under the leadership of Andy Grove, developed itself into the market dominating leader it is today.
AMD was founded a year later, and has long been Intel's main competitor. More recently, AMD took the lead in desktop processors, by producing the first 64 bit desktop processor, and winning the speed battle against Intel.
Intel- Pentium M (Dothan) for desktop, Pentium D, Intel Pentium 4 6 series, intel extreme edition.
these processors include the leading processors from both compainies, along with the "enthusiast's" choice.
Intel's dothan line of Pentium M processors has been very popular since the introduction of the Asus ct-479, which allowed it to be used on the desktop. These processors had a very good price to performance ratio, and overclocked extremely well. Team Japan's superPI records with it proved that it was indeed one of the world's best processors, beating both Intel's 6 series and EE processors (at that time), and AMD's Fx-57. However, the lack of support and expandability (the asus adaptor was only avalible to certian boards) and the fact that it used outdated motherboard technology made people think twice before buying it. Some of people's worries were that the processor could not be upgraded, and that most people using the Dothan were using the AGP platform. If they were want to upgrade to DDR2 and pci-e they would have to change almost their whole setup.
Advantages of Dothan:
-low power consumption
-relatively cheap compared to intel and AMD's best processors
-overclocks well, 100% or more overclocks acheived
-cannot be upgraded
-bad support from intel, they still do not recognise its potential as a desktop board, and do no develop products to support desktop use
-limited board choice. asus adaptor and compatible asus board required in most cases.
Intel's first dual core processors for mainstream use has both been very powerful and quite value-for-money. Their cheapest dual core is quite inexpensive as compared to intel's offerings and it suits those extreme multi-taskers on a budget. However, it is runs quite hot, as it is using a similar process to the precott cores, and even hotter when overclocked.

-cheap compared to amd's x2
-multitasking on a budget
- very high power consumption when overclocked
-must use 945 or 955 chipset boards, 915 and 925 users must upgrade their boards too.
amd's 3000+ venice offers a budget solution for overclockers, as this cpu often overclocks as well or even better than more expensive venice offerings.

Hi Waadee, nowadays all mobos (motherboards) have usb and pci.
Heat issues associated with amd are a well-known problem in the past but amd is a much more sophisticated creature now, both my present computer and previous computer were using amd without any heat issues.
Prescott (which is from intel) is known to be a hot chip.
Since you don't have any special requirements and you don't overclock, any motherboard would do. I would recommend Gigabyte - quality and features. Abit - distro Convergent is near sls and good.
Look at price list or go down to sls and walk around: shops like Fuwell, Bell, Dat should be able to look after you.
