    I have 4 machines, 3 of them run an AMD CPU, 1 runs a P4. While I've had the best overclocking with the P4, the price/performance is much better going with an AMD system.

    True, Intel CPU/Intel Chipset combos are pretty much unkillable, but with the advent of the nForce 1/2 chipset and a few other non-Via solutions, many people *****ing about lack of a solid chipset have to shut up.

    I'm not anti-Intel, it's just cheaper to build more of a computer when getting an AMD solution.

    I'm not trying to start anythying here man, but let me give it to you this way... PRIME EXAMPLE! I can pick up a P4 2.2ghz for 10 bucks less than an 1800+, 19 bucks less for a 1900+, 23 bucks less than a 2000+, 31 bucks less than a 2100+, and 43 bucks less than a 2200+ ... btw, the p4 2.4ghz i can also pick up for cheaper than the 2200+

    I'm not gonna sit here and bash you, but you have to realize man, prices aren't the same worldwide... here, it's smarter, when saving a buck, to buy Intel... (And not to meantion, the performance is there too.) Infact, the only intel proc I can't get for under 400 CDN$ is the 3.06ghz p4, it's still at 680 CDN$ ... But nevertheless... The P4's, up until the 2.53 (2.53 is about dead on price wise with the 2200+ (give or take a buck or two since yesterday's prices))... Anyway, point is, in some places (again here is one), Intel proc's are CHEAPER or the SAME PRICE per mhz or hell, even per rating than their AMD counterpart (w/ the exception of the 3ghz p4... but then again, the 3000+ aint' cheap either).

    What retailer are you buing through? Also note that the prices can be a little different in other parts of the world.

    Yep those prices don't add up here either as here an XP1800+ is around $140aus and a P4 2.0A is $320aus. :(

    Now to the top end and an XP2700+ is about $680aus and a P4 3.06GHz $1300aus. :cry:

    Now go figure why a lot of us here would rather go with AMD. :devil:

    Yeah - I usually get pretty good prices quoted to me by my supplier, but a P4 2.8 will still set me back more than $570cdn and a 3.06 is over $900cdn for retail boxes
    Even a 2.66 is still a couple $$'s over $400

    maybe you could give me a link or a phone number?

    In Sweden we pay:

    2.53 ghz = 250 us$

    2.66 ghz = 350 us$

    3.06 ghz = 650 us$

    I want the last one, and i want a 2700+, btw i want a whole lot of other stuff to. :cool:

    Read my statement again... The 3.06 is the only proc I can't get for 400 or under.. and sorry checked today's prices, and the 2.8 is going for 403 CDN$ (btw, these are cost, so tack on 15 bucks is what they go for retail + PST + GST (15% tax))
