Depends what you need them for? The Xeon is a very good processor, and the P4 Extreme Edition is very fast if you have the money.
AMD gives good performance in games but not much else.
Better performance if I had the money.
Faster for video/sound/graphics editing.
Best performance:value for money ratio.
Great performance for gaming.
