    That pc must be so fast!! It could probobly beat a x2 4800+ and leave it in the dust. The videocard is prolly the bottleneck now.
    My System:
    -AMD Athlon 64 3200+ Manchester Em4 Revision
    -Abit KN8-ULTRA
    -X800GTO2 @ X850XT PE (16 pipelines)
    -1024MB PQI TURBO DDR 400 @ (2x512) Dual Channel
    -450W Heavy Duty Rosewill Powersupply
    -Samsung Syncmaster 940BF>>>NEW
    -Seagate 250GB 16MB cache (perpendicular recording) with NCQ...

    yes, it may be faster than an x2 4800 but not as fast as any 2.6ghz athlon 64, which is easier to get. also, it aint dual core, so an x2 would beat it in any multithreaded app.
    System Specs:
    AMD athlon 64 3200 venice @ 2.4ghz
    Asrock Dual-939SATA2
    Sapphire Radeon X800GTO2 chip r430 @ 480mhz core/540mhz mem with 1.6v vcore
    1gb Corsair XMS TwinX PC3200 timings 2-3-3-6 at 400mhz
    250gb Hitatchi deskstar T7K500 SATAII disk
    160gb samsung spinpoint PATA disk
    Asus 1608P2 DVD+/-RW Dual Layer
    Unbranded 500W PSU single 17A rail
    Innovatek and Asetek Watercooling (triple fan radiator)

    Depending on the game, it's around as fast a 2.6-2.8GHz Athlon 64/Opteron/Sempron 64. It's a bad comparison since the X2 4800 is neither the top-of-the-line AMD processor (making it a random choice) nor single-core. Regardless, a 3GHz-3.2GHz Athlon 64/Opteron will outperform it in most applications, especially gaming. Such a feat is also achievable with a good air cooler and any of the following processors:
    Socket 939:
    Opteron All models
    Athlon 64 3700, 4000, FX-55, FX-57, FX60
    Athlon 64 X2 all models
    AM2:
    Athlon 64 all models
    Athlon 64 X2 all models

    Socket 479 is even better, as all of it's Core Duo processors will do over 3GHz on stock cooling, which will outperform anything out there.

    Ultimately, 4GHz is very cool, but there are cheaper ways to get better performance.

    So if i overclock my cpu to 2.6 I'm getting relatively the same performance as a 4ghz p4?

    I'd have to say Yawg's comparison is just a tad on the low side, I would say at least 2.8Ghz. But yes, as always with the AMD/P4 battle, AMD takes a lower clock speed but meets the performance of Intel CPU's running higher clocks.

    I probably was a bit on the low side, but my point stands. A 4GHz P4 is just not that super-high-end anymore. They sell P4s at 3.6Ghz, and P4s have been hitting 4GHz on water since the days of socket 478.
