Well, if you need an Intel chip anyway then why the debate. The only Intel 64-bit processor that you would be able to buy is server based anyway and it also costs a fortune.
Even if you were considering AMD, I would advise against the 64 chip. The cost is way too high for technology that isn't in it's prime. There won't be an OS that will put this processor to the test until mid-2004. I'd go for the P4 dude.
However, the board that you get for the new P4 will NOT be compatable with the 64 bit AMD. Hell, even the 2 different AMD 64's that are out have different sockets.
