Does PSE *really* require Intel Pentium ? - Adobe Photoshop Elements

Folks, I am trying to create an image processing system from scratch. Had just about decided on something based on PSE running on an AMD based pc (hp pavilion a110), when I noticed in the system requirements for PSE - Intel Pentium. A quick search on this group seems to show others using AMD, so I'm wondering - can I safely go ahead with AMD? Intel based pc's tend to be more expensive - are there real benefits I might regret not having later. All advice much appreciated. TIA, Paul...

    Default Does PSE *really* require Intel Pentium ?

    Folks,

    I am trying to create an image processing system from scratch. Had
    just about decided on something based on PSE running on an AMD based
    pc (hp pavilion a110), when I noticed in the system requirements for
    PSE - Intel Pentium.
    A quick search on this group seems to show others using AMD, so I'm
    wondering - can I safely go ahead with AMD? Intel based pc's tend to
    be more expensive - are there real benefits I might regret not having
    later.

    All advice much appreciated.

    TIA,
    Paul

    It's bound to start a real argument, but here goes:

    Back in the bad old days, AMD was a poor clone of Intel's processor. Since
    then, AMD has dramatically improved its reliability and functionality. I've
    not worked with PSE on an AMD system, but so far anyone's AMD system I've
    worked on has been OK running everyone else's applications. I still feel
    that Intel does have a performance edge over AMD. Personally, I buy only
    Intel systems for my home use. I don't find the added cost that great.

    Bottom line: flip a coin. As long as the rest of the PC is built around
    reliable components, I would not expect any hardware issues or any software
    compatibility problems. I'd be more concerned with Operating System
    Security.

    I've used PSE on both AMD and Intel machines; worked on both without a
    single problem. I currently run it on an AMD XP 2200 with 1Gb of RAM and it
    works like a dream,
