Intel have an edge in multitasking on the consumer line as well as video editing.

Comparing a 3200+ to a 3.2GHZ Intel, the 3200+ will outpeform.

And even if you are into multitasking, AMD simply gives more bang for the buck due to their much lower prices.
about a few dollars only here.

If you took a poll, I bet 80% of gamers would choose AMD, all the way. My dads business computer has AMD with Venice core, clocked at 2.4 Ghz speeds. It blows the prescott 3.73 P4 out of the water. AMD is advancing faster than Intel, especially with 64-bit.

If you want to game, get AMD or your a moron.

If you want to do stupid crap, like surf the internet and listen to music, just get a P4 then.

If you want to do stupid crap w/e value processor is fine.

AMD are still probolyl better due to the lower cost and lower power usage for stupid crap people

AMD does more work but at a slower pace.
Intel does less work faster.

I think you mean that the other way around....

Yeah if a game requires an AMD 3200+ will be able to handle the game as well as an 3.4 \ 3.6ghz Intel (Non EE)
