Which is the better CPU - Athlon 1200 or Duron 1300?

Basic home/internet use, plus online Medal Of Honor.

TIA.

if the athlon 1200 is a 266mhz version, i'd use that
if it's a 200 version, i'd use the duron maybe, althought this is borderline
when you compare them

Thanks for the reply.

I've no idea whether it's 200 or 266. I've since been told that the
Athlon has a larger cache than the Duron so I think I'll try it and
see.

Durons (and Celerons) are old technology...forget them.

Get either an Intel P4 or and AMD XP.
