    I don't think FX-53 is required.
    Its better to go with AMD 64 FX (U may even overclock it).

    Btw, I am not going to vote for a 32 bit proccy as they are going to b phased out.

    The first thing --

    u never told what r ur core applications and specifications of them

    r u a vivid gamer or u use a lot of 3d animation software

    there r many such questions that can really manke the difference betweem amd and intel

    even though i suggest u AMD, there might b cases where it might not live up 2 ur standards due 2 the applications of ur choice.

    Its nice to see such a good response and thank you all.
    i have seen many of asked about my core use of this new PC. its basically hardcore gaming and i am a game evaluator and reviewer. more often it will also be used complex 3D vector drawing as i am an designer by profession. Please tell me how DDR2 & PCI-E can influence performance and take crown away from Athlon64 FX-53 to Intel P4 EE. Is it worth to wait for "nVidia nForce 4" and "Dual processing core AMD Athlon 64 FX" processor. What would be the approximate costs of the specifications of AMD and INTEL.

    if you want performance+future compatibility then go for the AMD config. i see a fx + a giga mobo + 6800 ultra then there's no beating this config.

    In the intel config u have choosen the X600 PCI-E card, this isnt exactly the fastest card available out there. So u might want to change. Plus in 939 cpus the memory controller is gonna b on die so that wud definitely be a huge plus for AMD processors. However if you are more into professional designing then a workstation card wiuld be more suited. DDR2 will show its advantage once it is past 667Mhz mark. PCI-E though a good technology still has to show its advantages since now-a-days most cards ship with a good amount of local memory. Nforce 4, well wait for it if you want SLI or PCI-E in ur rig.

    Also most of these components aren't that easily available in India, and those that are available are overpriced.

    Thank's man for so much of info. but problem outhere is the availability of AMD Athlon 64 FX-53. Also the mobo and graphics card also aren't easily available. I know that The AMD PC is gonna cost me no less than Rs.90,000.
    But I think it would be future proof. Moreover in many benchmarking websites Atlon 64 FX-53 easily beats out P4 EE (Socket 478) but I am Still unsure about P4 EE (LGA 775). :?:

    Hey instead of clearing my doubts, it seems u people are urself full of doubts and are making me more confused.
    ok even if i go 4 an AMD Athlon 64 FX-51.What's The bargain??? It would too cost me that much only(90K) bcoz of Registered DDR memory modules.

    hey listen, just go for the amd config. but the question you have not answered is gaming ? if its heavy gaming then go for intel because of PCIe and try matching it up with a nvidia 6800 or the ati x800.

    But if gaming is not ur thing then blindly go for the amd. it will serve you better in the long run and oh, do go for the Win XP 64-bit OS to complement ur system. it will release around mid-october.

    Cheers !

    anishcool
    intel suports the pcie
    but the 6800 and the x800 dont yet !
    and the general convention is if u want gamin ... go for amd ... it rocks

    Dude if you can wait till December, wait. Cuz AMD 64 3800+ 939 would be cheap by then, and that non registered memory will perform faster than a regged one. So in reality the 3800+ just might have an edge over the FX. See my point ........... Also NF-4 chipset supporting PCI-E wud be available by then.

    @anishcool: Even if he does invest in an Intel now, whar wud be the point. we will saying 'tata' to 32-bit sooner or later. :)

    Ok To end the war, I finally decided over the following specs:-

    AMD ATLHON 64 3400+
    DFI LANPARTY UT nF3 250Gb
    1 GB CRUCIAL PC3200 DDR400 SINGLE STICK RAM
    2 SAMSUNG 80 GB SATA HDD
    SAMSUNG WRITEMASTER 16X DUAL LAYER DVD WRITER
    XFX GeFORCE 6800 ULTRA
    Aspire X-Dreamer II (with 350W PSU)

    THIS CONFIGURATION COST ME NEARLY Rs.45,000, TOO CHEAP FROM AMD ATHLON 64 FX-51 BUT RUNS ON 2.2 GHz AND CAN BE OVERCLOCKED UPTO 2.4 GHz ie UPTO THE SPEED OF AMD ATHLON 64 FX-53. OK PERFORMANCE IS A LAG BEHIND BUT ONLY IN MEMORY INTENSIVE TASKS. YET IT EASILY OVERPOWERS INTEL PENTIUM 4 EE (EXTREME EDITION) 3.2 GHz BASED ON SOCKET 478 WITH DUAL CHANNEL RAM. THIS CONFIGIRATION GAVE ME A LOT OF MENTAL PEACE AND HAPPINESS. NOW I CAN PLAY DOOM3 WITH ALL ITS EFFECTS ON AND GAVE BEST OUT OF MY MONEY DEPOSIT. :lol: :D
