I used to be an Intel freak, then AMD brought out their socket 754's
socket 940 proc's are too expensive and so is the Intel P4EE (extreme edition) however
* the Athlon 64 3400's and 3200's I know outperform the P4EE
*the 3400 is about half the price and the 3200 is about 1/3 the price
* they can process 64-bit
* Windows "Longhorn" will require a 64-bit processor to run thus making all of Intel's current CPU's except the Itanium irrelevant, and do you know how hard it is to find an Itanium?

I found out the Athlon 64's have a 1600MHZ FSB, twice that of the best Intel P4's
Of course that is irrelevant, seeming how even the best memory can only support up to a certain speed bus wise. Also if you really looked into it all those bus speeds are theoretical. Its labled 1600mhz, but its prob more like 266mhz-333mhz real speed with optimizations that make it perform *like* a 1600mhz bus. Intel plays that same game. If you dont belive me, take your amd chip and up the bus to what it says it supports, you'll burn your chip up.
