Default Intel vs. AMD

I am looking to build a new PC but haven't decided on Intel vs. AMD.
I have looked at the P4 Extreme 3.73GHz and also their P4 Dual Core 840 and they look quite alike. Then AMD have some kick-*** dual-core chips so I am confused as to which is best.

Any advice?

On TF, you will always find that the majority prefer AMD. I personally prefer Intel.
BTW: This topic has been posted many a time, search before you post.

if you want dual core then go for AMD do not get an intel dual core as they are rubbish. For single core it depends on what you want from your computer and how much you have/want to spend
