Sure the Athlon XP might heat up in most cases, but the Athlon 64 are extremely cool, even cooler than a Northwood and uses less than half the power of a P4 Prescott.
Yeah, I thought that the Prescott core tends to get WAY hot...which is it?!?!? (so I know whether or not to groan about my P4 2.8 prescott or )

Actually, i'll probably invest in a Prescott... the LGA 775. But then there is the nForce 4 SLI that might attract me to a Athlon 64.... i'll have to wait.

It looks like that all the people that have posted on this topic are going with intel for some reason! Lets not forget here that AMD is the best cpu. Case closed!By the way the prescott has the overheating problem!AMD's dont overheat they just run hott.period:beard:
