I´d like to know the directly AMD equivalent of the P4 3Ghz...and if you think it´s going to be different on the 64-bits system. Thanks!

this is why AMD has names like 3000+ ......it means it's equivelant to 3000MHz+ to that of an Intel.

AMD Athlon 64 3000+

However, although it techniclly is equal to the p4 3ghz, it generally smokes most intel chips, save for their strongest EE chips

I´ve heard from many people that AMD has better quality for the price, but that Intel does multi tasking better. Not gaming. And a 3.0Ghz by Intel does alt tabbing faster than an AMD 3200+. Is that right?

Hopefully people can keep it together...

That is basically true. All you have to do is search for benchmarks, I find them much more informative than opinions. But basically, you will see certain areas where AMD wins (Gaming being one), and certain areas where Intel wins (multitasking being one).
