    buying an AMD gives you better performance for your dollars...and yes while some P4's o/c very well, there are plenty that don;t..also buying AMD gives u better upgrade options...who knows when intel are going to change their socket again

    For the price, it's hard to beat amd. However, if you are serious about overclocking, some of the P4's can really cook (without being cooked).

    Compare the price of a boxed Thoroughbred XP 2200+ and the boxed 2,26 ghz p4... :)
    Here in sweden the Intel is only about
    20$ more expensive, and the sucker will give you
    the choise to o/c to.
    Put the Intel on a ddr based board and you'll get a quite cheap but still very high performance
    setup that does'nt cost so mutch more than a amd system... :)

    /Well, that's my opinion, disagree? Yell at me...

    And at the moment quite valid as the difference here is about $50aus difference between them though sadly that Athlon is $200aus too much for me. :(
    And the 533MHz FSB Intel has room to move. AMD has been putting all it weight behind the "Hammer" family rollout and sorta forgot the K7's. :cry:

    166MHz FSB "Bartons" would be even better. ;)
