not at all. The AMD is a 64 bit processor. 64bit computing is the future. That pentium isnt going to last long. IM assumint you are talking about a 1500 if they even make them that low or is it something else because for example the 2400 doesnt clock at 2.4 it clocks lower. Give us the numbrers. No matter what still get the amd. Amd is the future and their processors are way better and much cheaper. Pentiums have something that the info has to pass through before it goes to the ram where amd doesnt have something like that the info goes straight to the ram meaning much faster speeds.
Well according to reviews by so many computer magazines, the AMD Athlon 64 does a pretty good job and in fact, performs better overall compared to the P4 HT. I would get on the 64-bit bandwagon with AMD and not Intel.
