I've heard that a 2800 runs @ 2.8GHz, but I've also read that it doesn't, and I'm kinda leaning towards the latter.

yes they are numbered that way by AMD because they are roughly the equivilant. for wordy technical reasons they are not the same mhz but perform similar. But like major said there are advantages and disadvantages about both. amd's are said to be better for gaming, while intel is often better for business apps and the like (i believe).

MS will release XP64 soon. And AMD will totally beat Intel as soon as 64bit apps are released, especially in Photoshop, Premiere, GoLive etc
