sry i dont have enough intellectual talent to remember to say all the technical stuffs in a post.
Maxumum PC recently did a test between the AMD 64 (top), P4 extreme, and apple G5 dual proc, and the p4 barely won, by only an inch or so. I think that AMD did well in this "test" considering they did make a 64 bit proc when none of the benchmarks really were for 64 bit apps. The apple obviously got pwned, but thats probably because the apps it's made for havent even come out yet (dual processor apps)
oh well, no matter what i look stupid.
