well usually amd is better for gaming but in this case the P4 would be better. Its kind of like comparing a celeron 3.1ghz with a P4 3.0 ghz the p4 will win every time

New build in progress, but this is what I got for now:
-AMD x2 5200+
-Asus M3A78-EM AM2+
-Buffalo 2x1gb ddr2 800
-Hitachi 250gb Sata HDD
-Antec Minuet Case w/ 350w psu
-Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

The price between the older socket Mobos and the S939 Mobos are getting closer and closer, no point in buying a old mobo now.

well, instead of changing the boy's plans, I'm going to answer his question. The P4 kicks butt any time.
