Question

Hey all Im in the process of building a computer from scratch for the first time and as such I could uses some help. As of right now I work on a Dell Dimension 2350 and I just starting to get tired of its current specs but rather than polish a turd id rather try my hand at building one

So far I've searched around and have already gotten a good case that can support ATX and microATX style mobo

Thermaltake-Soprano Mid-Tower Case-Black if you want to know

Now I use my comp for essentially gaming, watching videos, and occasionally making music(MIDI) So I want to know whats important for me

So I guess one question I want to ask is what is better an AMD mobo or an Intel

tips would be nice and suggestions would be awesome
