Question by LTigerRay: I am in the market to buy a new desktop computer and I was wondering what is the best processor?
I believe an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor is the best, but how does an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core compare? This computer will be used for both a small business and personal, including gaming.

AMD should be fine. Core 2 duo is just much easier to overclock, which you don’t need to do.
