Nothing gives you more bang for the buck than AMD. Intel is the King of Speed at the moment, but you pay for it. Ive found it much more satisfying to use the "Next to the latest technology" which makes it easier to keep up. Youll go broke trying to keep pace with the latest developments and AMD is still plenty fast for most anything. If I were to build Intel, Id stay back around the 2.4- 2.66ghz range as their costs have plunged down to reasonable levels. In 6 months, youll be able to get 3.06 ghz cpus for what were paying for the 2.4s now.

2.53ghz P4. No competition. I think datektrader could agree with this after his switch from an XP2000+ to a P4 2.53ghz.

I've heard that AMD are a menace to keep cool, they overheat too much. At the end of the day you get what you pay for. You pay peanuts you get monkies. I'd go for Intel every time. I have a laptop with a basic celeron 500 MHz and you'd be surprised how well it works. I can use Word, internet, IRC and burn CDs all at once with no serious problem and no overheating. Ok, not amazing, but not bad for a 500 MHz. It's this performance that committed me to staying with Intel and I just built a system with a P4 1.8 GHz and it flies like a rocket. Intel are excellent value in my personal opinion.

Hate to be a big AMD Freak but their processors are just better in my opinion.
It's probably me just being biased but I've owned and used both Intel and AMD and I like my AMD better. Since building mine I have helped or single-handedly (is that a word?) built multiple AMD systems all running great to this day. For the overall performance they are much easier on the pocketbook.

It really depends on what you are doing....I build computers for a living, and there is no way in hell i would build a custom gaming system with a pentium in it AMD roxors for gaming and Video editing, but for a day trader that needs his box running full speed all day to get quotes and info on stocks 24/7 i would reccomend pentium with good stick of ram because it runs cooler than an AMD, but with an AMD all you need is a good heatsink and you will be perfectly fine, i run a 2700 with a thermagic heatsink and i run at room temperature. The thermagics can run a p4 3.06 at room temp with a full scsi system, i saw it done in vegas at comdex, so i am not talking $%^!@#.

My system specs are xp1600, 256M ddr400 and at school i work with a server machine that has a pentium 4 2.0Ghz, 568M of ram and i'd say that my xp1600(1.4Ghz) machine at home outperforms the p42.0Ghz system at school. So going on my experience in this particular situation i'll keep leaning toward amd i think. I never owned pentium machine before and may never will as long as amd keeps doing what theyre doing. Take a look yourself at some benchmarking competitions between p4 and xps and you will see yourself that the xps outperform the p4 in most tests. And the competitions are usually a matchup like xp2000(1.74Ghz) vs. pentium4 2.0 Ghz. Notice the difference in speeds.
So it is clear that the if you put an xp against a p4 hat both ran at the same clock speed the p4 wouldnt have a chance.

One good thing i can say about p4 is this:
higher bus speed = being able to take advantage of the full bandwith capabilities of newer DDr Ram. DDr333Mhz (pc2700) & DDr400Mhz (pc3200).

Amd's improvement in this area is coming though. The default multiplier of the xps will lower but this will allow for the bus to increase w/o frying the cpu. This is how intel gets away with the high bus speed.

The new AMD chips and the Nforce 2 chipsets can handle the True capabilities of the 433 Mhz ram and 400 FSB

XP 2800, and it is said to be able to handle the hammers when they come out, unless the socket is changed which i am nto aware of.
