Default So a pentium 4 3.6ghz or an athlon 3700+?

I currently have a 530 pentium 4 3.0ghz, was wondering if an athlon 3700+ outperforms a pentium 4 640 3.6ghz? I hear it can outperform all pentium 4...but not sure if this is true, I desperately need a new cpu for the games Im trying to play...my current processor isnt cutting it with a 6600gt. Thank you.

I just had a topic about this. Ethereal says that the 3700+ is roughly equal to a 3.7GHz P4. It pretty much beats any pentium. We're talking about single-cores of course.
