Pentium 4 is faster. Yes, benchmarks say that amd processors have way better performance, but that is only on websites with amd enthusiasts, and on other sites (intel fans) pentium 4's are better. So in the long run they are the same. Plus the pentium 4 2.8ghz is cheaper, and with H/t technology you can't go wrong, but you should get the 2.4ghz because it can easily be overclocked to 3.0ghz (so can the 2.8ghz pentium 4).

Arrow A faster CPU for cheaper -

Why a 64 bit processor if you have a 256 bit Video Card. I would rather have the extra 800MHz for $45 cheaper. Besides, I think the 2.8GHz w/ 1GB RAM and 256 bit Video Card would work super smooth for gaming. AND isn't P4 supose to be better quality and reliability? Don't know for sure but thats what I hear.

It all depends on what you want to do . In all the benchmarks I've ever seen AMD performs better in gaming and Intel in multimedia. Tom's Hardware is proof of this. In all their benchmarks they are fair in testing.

Yes, Tom's Hardware is pretty unbiased and gives Intel and nVidia a fair chance. In other websites, you will see AMD and ATI owning every nVidia and Intel products.

Wow, 64 bit capabilities, too bad this proc won't really matter when 64 bit DOES come out, and to whoever wanted benchmarks, I'll get around to it.

You're right about 754 Athlon 64's because the Athlon XP will soon move to that platform, but if Altima Returns could put up the cash for a socket 939 64, which are projected to last a couple of years and by that time I know there will be 64 bit apps.
