    There is nothing wrong with AMD processers in fact they were the industry leaders for quite few years
    Intel has introduced the core 2 duo and has taken the lead as the fastest cpu's from Amd.
    That said the AMD dual core processers are still pretty quick and could still be fast enough for your needs
    Also because Intel core 2 duo are the "must have" at the moment it tends to reflect in the price you pay for machines with them installed
