lol this is a 2 year old thred but any way. nowadays i rekon intels run hotter than amd .. like the prescot. i am an amd person mostly becose my friends are at high school. i always found intel cpus so confusion but amd tell you exacly what u need ... ( its a amd athlon 64 3000 at 1.8 ghz on socket 939 k8 cpu) as for size of the cache .. intel needs a bigger cache than amd becouse of the way there made a 512 kb is big enough for most amd cpus. if u want a fast amd cpu buy an athlon FX. i would also buy the new AM2 socket witch uses new ddr2 ram. simply to be redy for the future.
soz i misred ur question. the turion is a laptop cpu not a destop. im not sure what one would be best as i dont read up on them much
