Who dropped you on your head? AMD owns Intel in every game. Intel owns AMD in some applications, and at multitasking. AMD is cheapr but they are of better quality and the new AMD 64's run alot cooler than the P4's.

from the pentium vs amd topic

TRUE_ORB

" Basically, Pentiums give you slightly higher performance for a huge increase in price, and are known to be better with high-demand apps than AMD, whereas AMD is generally considered better for gaming.
AMDs are also known to run a little bit hotter.

I think if you're on a budget, gaming only with your PC, or looking for a high performance/cost ratio you should get an AMD.
If you have a lot of money to spend and you run a lot of taxing progs, go Intel.

People argue over this topic day in and day out and solve absolutely nothing. It might as well be an argument between religions or politics."

Nubius the moderator even agreed with TRUE_ORB

He was quite arrogant about it really.

i feel like i rested my case

to tell you guys the truth, the XPS is a very great system. I have a Gen 2 model and had no problems with it what so ever. i play doom 3 with no problems. the only problem i have with the XPS is that it is noisy. Its noisy becasue the p4 gets pretty hot. to solve this problem, i modded the box. i put 2 vantec stealths at the rear, 120mm ys tech fan as intake, and a UFO thermaltake fan on the heat sink. i also got a fan controler to control the fan speeds of the 120 amd UFO.

i never came into contact with a Gen 4 system, so i dont know how noisy or how hot it gets.

gen4 is a beast it is said to be the second to last gen 5 is the last well gen 4 has fixed the noise problem they went with some air systems that makes a clear path right thru it so it only cools whats needed and no obstruction, so u dont nedd to add anything. i used 1 at a dell kiask at the mall and i played for like 2 hours straight with hl 2 and dom 3 and switched off in between, final conclusion quiet blows very cool air its nice in other words
