A little note about 32- vs 64-bit. A 64-bit processor handles twice as much data every clock, but ONLY while running 64-bit software. So if your only 64-bit software is your OS you won't see much benefit. Future programs will utilize this more, but as of right now it doesn't matter very much. All AMD dual-core processors are 64-bit, as are all Intel Core 2 Duos. The Core Duo line is 32. Core Duos are comparable to Turion X2's. AMD cannot currently match a Core 2 Duo, but their prices are lower.
