Heres a comparison between the Q8200 and the X4 620. Since the Q8200 is 2.33ghz and the Q8300 is 2.5ghz you could expect it to perform slightly better. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/default.aspx?p=106&p2=52 | Report abuse mi1ez CPUs Expert October 23, 2009 2:49:51 PM Oh FFS. bloody tom's forums. so unreliable. Let me type that again.... Chances are the AMD system comes with a better IGP. As bige says, the Intel will perform slightly better but they both sound like more than enough for the activities listed. Are they the same price? Can you provide any more specs? RAM? graphics? | Report abuse kathysgrandkids October 24, 2009 7:05:47 AM One is 799.00 and the other is 999.99. Here is another one I found tonight at Costco with Windows 7 on it? What do you think about this one; I am female so not too knowledgeable on the mechanics of a computer; can use it fine..... Much appreicate a response......

Of those other two, the 799 one is the much better choice simply because the cpu's are pretty much identical. A phenom II 945 is much more powerful than both. Try to find out what motherboard is on each so we can figure out what graphics are being used. | Report abuse koionly November 4, 2009 7:36:43 PM I am also confused in deciding which one to buy and so happy to see those answers. Can anyone tell me if my major application is for Photoshop Element 7, which one will be better? Much appreciated. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Intel core2 quad q8300 versus amd x4 quad core 620> Related ressources: ForumIntel Core 2 Quad Q8300 or AMD Athlon II X4 620 ForumAmd ii x4 955 or 945 versus i5 750 versus core 2 quad ForumCompaq CQ5306uk Desktop Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 ForumWhich one is better AMD Athlon II X4 620 Quad-Core Processor or intel core 2 dou ForumAmd athlon II x4 vs core 2 quad Forumtemporary cheap rig Athlon II X4 620 vs. Q8300 ForumAMD Athlon II X4 620 Quad-Core for UNDER 100 BUCKS ForumIntel Core2 Quad : Q6600 vs Q8200 - Which is better?
