The time has come to buy a new computer. Do I go for an AMD athlone processor or an intel pentium?

i used to have AMD and wouls swear by it. but since the new dual core and quad core INTEL have wiped the floor with AMD.
(currently on Intel dual core 3ghz.)
Ditto the above. I always had AMD in the past but now have a dual core Intel laptop and a quad core in the desktop and they are really really fast. AMD are lagging behind at the moment.
Another vote for AMD
Hijacking the thread slightly, does anybody have an opinion on the specification of these:
Ignoring that they are from PC World as I know this can cause as much debate as Jessops/BT/Microsoft (yawn) but a friend wants one for her son who is studying photography with graphic design and I know nothing about PCs (he gets a discount with PC World though his college apparently)
1st off why would u buy from DSG when they are now about scrapeing the barrel. AND if you do make sure BOTH pcs are 64bit OS else the 6gb and 8gb of ram will not be recognised.
There's some comparative benchmarks on Tom's Hardware ...
Cheers everyone. Thank you for your input.
Intel, the Q6600 still wipes the floor with even the latest Phenoms and its a year old . . . . The latest i7 is blisteringly fast in comparison . . . If you are into building your own This bundle is pretty difficult to beat . . . especially if you are into over clocking . . . although I would change the RAM for Corsair/OCZ and the Heat sink for and Arctic cooling Freezer 7 Pro for that purpose
Wouldn't buy an advent pc at all.
Try Dell or Acer for a top spec computer.
Personnally I like to build my own
