    It's all a matter of taste, money and what you use it for but both overclock easily but the Athlon does have the bonus of multiplier manipulation so it's really up to you in the end. Just remember that there are certain horses for certian courses so pick your course first then go from there. :devil win

    BTW I won't be in a hurry to get another P4 as they don't suit my use so the new Athlon system that I build myself next month (after price cuts) will be a real performer and not a benchmark freak. :devil:

    For 3D modeling work would you happpen to know if one is better than the other?

    The software would be Maya PLE and XSI.

    Thanks for the info.

    P.S. Wiggo you rock! If I was a girl I would want to have your babies. :D

    I'm glad that ya not. :D

    I couldn't say with that software as I don't know it but most of mine rely on raw floating point operations where the Athlon's 3 FPU's come into their own and SSE2 instructions arn't worth a damn so ya goin' to have to do some homework on that one ya self. ;)

    I look at the two this way, if ya into finely tuned race V8's then that describes the Athlon, but if ya into European or Japanese 4 cylinder turbo racers with their peaky engines then that describes the P4 (well my description anyway). :devil:

    :cry:

    Actually me too. It's tough enough being a guy. I really would not want to have to deal with all the extra **** a girl has to go through. Plus... the best part about being a guy is that you can piss in someone's eye.

    I know Lightwave loves P4s. I was looking at a P4 cause I want to make a silent but high powered computer. But now I'm thinking of switching from a p4 2.4Ghz on either a Granite bay or SIS 648 to a Athlon Thrghbrd 1.8 on an nForce 2.

    Got to say I'm in the Euroese pr Japean crowd. I like to turn my car(since I get lost all the time I have to!) and I like to feel the road.

    No I can't say that I have. I've never been much to watch events/sports/etc.
    But I have found that I do like to watch certain kinds of racing, i.e. rally and street(not the illegal crap).

    Well that race goes for 1000km (600miles) up and down a mountain and there V8's rule. :thumb:

    The V8 drivers are always complainin' about how dangerous and slow those "other" cars are windin' up the mountain. :laugh:
