No, no and no. Do not...get an AMD.
Just don't, your reason is invalid and stupid. You like them? How can you like a CPU? It is a piece of metal that makes your computer work at different speeds depending on the core.
C2D >>>> AMD
AMDs are pointless right now and you have no reason why you should get one. 4GB is pointless as well.
An AMD will ALWAYS underperform a C2D. So if you want a rig that is going to last you 2 years or so, you need a C2D. Not an AMD. You got it all wrong here.
