I am custom building a desktop and was wondering if the hyper-threading in the Intel would make a big difference on using design software and general use or whether it would not be a noticeable and wouldn't be worth the price jump. I have the choice of the AMD with 8gb or Ram or the Intel with 4gb, which would be the best?
More aboutamd phenom 560 intel core 2100
the i3 stomps all over the phenom. just get the intel and upgrade to more ram later. 4gb ram is like $25. It takes a quad core phenom to meet the i3 2100 in performance.
