Intel tends to make higher quality, more expensive and innovative CPUs, where AMD makes budget, power efficient, industrial CPUs that you see in more low end environments.
As far as specs go that truly depends on the packages being compared, this is a comparison in a gist.

So, I have this virus that resides in my C:\windows\temp folder, and gives it self the folder name name mbt(random numbers and letters).temp and inside is a whole heap of files and a executable called stdrt.ese.
From what I can tell it constantly downloads at 20% of my networks capability. What it downloads, no one knows. And it also hijacks my audio and plays random 30 sec clips of music or ads in addition to using 20-300MB of RAM and around 13% of my CPU.
I have tried scanning it with 3 types of AV and NONE have detected it.
I have deleted the files and emptied the recycle bin but it regenerates at boot with another randomly hidden file.
I have also removed all registry entry's with stdrt.exe in them.
I have gone into safe mode and tried to wipe it too.
The only way I can kill it for the time being is ending the process in task manger and the process in the resource monitor.
Luckily malwarebytes blocks it from accessing some ports automatically.
I am thinking of making a boot disk that will clean it but I want to explore all the possible fixes first.
Anyone have experience with this virus?
Or any help?
It sounds like it's a Phage virus, "...Alters other programs and databases. The virus infects all of these files. The only way to remove this virus is to re-install all the programs that are affected. If you miss even a single incident of this virus... the process will start again and infect the system." Straight from my A+ guide.

alright so heres what I've got
AMD Athlon II X3 455 Rana 3.3GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor ADX455WFGMBOX
e-GeForce 8800 GTS
BIOSTAR A880G+ AM3 AMD 880G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Obviously I don't know too much about computer parts.. I had my brother pick them all out for me and I was just wondering what would you guys rate these specs 1 - 10 and should it be able to run Skyrim and on how high of settings?
Looks like it should run, but don't expect to max out.

Doesnt look that bad but the reviews dont look to good.
WHAT??? The AMD 6870 is one of the best price:performance cards out there and will max out most any game with stock speeds.
Also Sapphire is good. :smile.gif:

yeah go with AMD or wait till intel's ivy bridge is released... if it lives up to all the hype it would be decent enough for playing it, but don't try to play any opengl games on any current intel graphics.
I wouldn't suggest doing this because it will not match up with the proper price:performance ratio. AMD's GPUs will always trump Intel graphics and an ivy bridge with a dedicated GPU is going to be costly.
