    I run AutoCAD all day for work purposes and usually have something
    else running (usually audio/video editing/converting) in background. I
    usually have to set the other application on low priority else autocad
    is chronic slow. Sometimes i will also be gaming (but not heavy i.e.
    nothing like doom!) while converting. What is the best dual-core
    processor available for this sort of environment. At around £100
    price. I have seen intel pentium d packages at good prices but have
    heard that they are not very efficient and that amd is better. Have
    tried searching internet for advice but confusing for non-i.t.
    professionals. Can anyone help!

    You don't need dual-core, you need two separate computers. Believe me, I
    keep two running all the time. And one of them is a high-end dual core
    computer.
