    Default Comparing 2 computers - Which is better?

    I am not a tech guru and as such I am seeking help. Currently I run RIFT on:

    AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4600+
    2.4 Ghz, 2 GB Ram

    I just bought for my business:

    Intel Pentium Dual Core E5800 Socket LGA775
    3.2 GHz, 800MHz FSB, 2MB L2 Cache, 45nm
    2 GB Ram

    I can move the video card I have from one to the other, but question is, which computer is stronger/better/faster and by how much (% wise so I can understand it).

    The E5800 is almost double the power of the X2.

    WOW, really? Thanks man! Are there other factors I should consider? (Video card can be moved no problem).

    Nothing more to consider, the E5800 will run rings around that Athlon in basically everything.
