ASUS A7V333 - Athlon/XP
ASUS P4T533 - P4 (Performance, i850E, RDRAM)
ASUS P4S533-E - P4 (Value, i845E, DDR)

Athlon XP = cheaper, outperforms similarly clocked P4, higher performance in many games.

P4 = more expensive, more prone to overclocking, better thermal protection, higher performance in office applications, etc.

Man I'm a minority here If I had the choice, I would search around and find which one I could get the best bang for the buck. That doesnt neccesarily mean i would go AMD because i've seen P4's faster than athlon XP's and for less money. Just my thoughts.....
