    no p4 with ht doesnt support 64 bit computing .
    u need to pget the amd 64 processor for tht
    p 4 3 gig equivalent is the amd 3000 !!
    they name it very aptly !
    tho ofcourse it doesnt match 3gigz .. it matches performance
    yet id still say pentium !

    costly but still pentium4

    Hi i will also go with Pentium4.

    wait for some time and you will get 64 bit pentium version.

    xp 64bit is also there to help you.

    bye

    AMD is generally better value wise, but the higher P4 ht processors are good. It all depends on the cost ... And yeah, if an AMD 64 3000+ fits in the budget, go for it. It will give nearly equal performance to the p4 3 ghz, and add 64 bit support.

    AMD is cheaper, Intel processors are costly...
    Intel has been i the market for a decade...amd is new

    So it depends on what matters most to you...if it's cost, go for an AMD
    If you want stability, reliability etc, go for an Intel (i'm not saying AMD aint stable...just that it's new)

    a pentium 4 2.8 ghz runs at 2800mhz
    a amd athlon xp 2800+ runs at 2083mhz
    yet it performs on par with a p4 2.8 :)
    and the amd does with with a mhz deficieny of 717mhz :)
    now u dont need to be a PhD in nuclear physics to tell which is a better product and to add icing to the cake amd costs lower than a pentium 4 :)

    frankly speaking U DONT NEED A 64 BIT PROCESSOR FOR THE NEXT 2 YEARS ATLEAST AT HOME USER LEVEL :)

    so i'd advise to go in for a amd athlon xp processor now with a nforce2 based mother board (i'd suggest ASUS A7N8X-E Delux)

    if u want a p4 system wait a bit for newer prescott processors and newer boards on the grantsdale chipset :)

    cos the present mobo's dont utilize the entire potential of prescotts :(

    so if u want amd go now

    if u want pentium wait a bit

    and IF U DO want to go in for a 64 bit processor
    go in for a amd athlon 64 or athlon 64 fx51 :)

    use VIA KT800 chipset based mobo or nForce3 based board :)

    the choice is urs :)

    but my vote goes to AMD :D
    enjoy :)

    When it comes to price/performance amd is better. But I've to admit that it is offset by the high cost of motherboards that support amd(They are really scarce,and praise assus).

    AMD vs Intel

    The question of AMD or Pentium purely depends on your requirements. The number crunching power of Pentiums are much better than AMD, thus making them a better gaming/graphics rendering processor. On the other hand AMD has better pipelines. Also AMD processors have the unique property of being able to rename registers on the fly, thus saving precious processor cycles which Intel processors spend MOVing data from one register to the other. Considering the price aspect, AMDs are definitely the winner. But again Pentium motherboards are comparatively cheaper.

    Depends on your use. For all normal use, AMD is no problem at all. Actually, in some of the benchmarks, AMD performed better. Its cheaper too!!

    first of all thnx raven :D
    secondly
    AMD mobo's arent costly !!
    a krypton mobo with nforce2 chipset costs like 3.8k (ddr400/ata133/5.1soundetc)
    where as even though the ASUS A7N8X-E Delux mobo is costly compared to other amd mobo's it's price is justified !!
    cos it has IEEE1394/SATA150/Soundstorm Dolby 5.1/SPDIF/WIFI SLOT/NVIDIA LAN/GIGABIT LAN/TWIN BANK MEMORY ARCHITECTURE/and other frills :D
    put all these in a intel based board and the price shoots up beyond the cost of the amd board :p
    so saying they r costly and rare is not exactly justifiable :D
    and earlier ppl said amd's get HOT !!
    but look at present 478 pin prescotts :p they GET HOT hehe
    neway
    finally the choice is for buyer to make :D
    enjoy:)
