    Intel provids good platform for Multi Tasking and AMD is poor in that but good in Single Tasking.

    *AMD64 processors consume less power compared to Intel

    ( http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets/showdoc.aspx?i=2275&p=13 )

    *They are very cool even at high CPU load.

    *Intel offers only 36bit physical vs 40bit+ on AMD. (*Nobody* offers full 64-bit physical addressing just yet. )

    * Intel does not provide a pure 64bit long mode, only something that
    resembles AMD's compatible mode.

    * SYSENTER vs SYSCALL

    So far the situation in the market looks as follows.

    Intel’s new 64bit CPUs copes better than its AMD rival with streaming data processing and multimedia files encoding. Also, it appears quite efficient for multi-threading tasks, such as 3ds max or Photoshop. The newcomer from AMD, however, proved really fast in scientific tasks and games. If we make some additional allowances, we will be able to state its leadership over the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition even in contemporary 3D games.

    So, which is the fastest CPU -- AMD's Athlon 64 or Intel's Pentium 4?
    The answer depends on which software you use: there is no clear winner here.

    The Athlon 64 has an advantage with mainstream office and Internet applications, and 3D games. Meanwhile, the Pentium 4 can always score with optimised software -- particularly 3D and video rendering. The multitasking tests also show an advantage for Intel's Pentium 4.

    The Athlon 64 has a clear advantage in terms of cost. Although AMD's and Intel's fastest chips are comparably priced, system costs are higher for Pentium 4-based PCs with DDR2 memory. The price difference between Athlon 3500+ and Pentium 4 550 systems is even larger, because the AMD chip costs very less than its Intel counterpart.

    AMD64 3000+ (socket 939) - Rs 6300
    MSI Rs482 - Rs 4700
    512 MB DDR400 Hynix RAM - Rs 2100

    Total - 13000

    The onboard graphics are good for a casual gamer.SO dont worry about the graphics card.

    Asrock K8NF4G Sata 2 motherboard is really good value for money.

    Look out for this board.

    Has Geforce 6100 onboard grafix as well as PCIe 16X slot.

    i dint understand this . why wud they not give 64bit when they advertise for it ?

    The other things , i hav to completely agree with u .
    no offnese . but guys in the forum are biased or what word cud i use , partial to amd's . i dunno why precisely , most put it as though amd wins in everything .
    But here i feel this is the best comparision . i wud love it if u go a bit more in to it and in a little more detail.

    BYE

    I dunno y u compaired P4 550 with Athlon 3500+.............
    cause P4 550 does not support 64bit processing, the processors in the series of 600 supports 64bit processing.(don't Believe me check intel site)

    and Athlon 3500+ is a 64bit processor.
    thats y no comparision exists.

    AMD is better if you are a serious gamer, if not then go for a Intel, it is better for video and audio editing apps.

    Dude, socket 754 is an old socket type.
    Also, it supports FSB only upto 800 Mhz.
    Also, 754 does not officially support PCI-X16 graphics cards which is the new standard for display cards. AGP is going to be out in 1-2 years.
    U may have problems in future if u buy mb based on 754 socket.
    Socket 939 is the best cos it supports FSB upto 1000 Mhz, supports PCI-X16 & is also future proof.

    he is not talking about 64 bit processing but memory adressing, which is different.......

    alll porcessors can process 64bit but cannot adress all that memory, i dont think u will anyhow be using all that memory in this world.....

    are u actually going to put in more than 4Gb ram in next 2-3 years.... by then they will come up with newer processors...

    I dont think 939 is costlier than 754 at least as of now. And even if there is some slight diff., it is worth going for 939.
