    AMD and Intel are the two big cheeses in the computing world.

    For those of you who don't know the differences:
    - An AMD Athlon XP is much cheaper than an equivalent Intel P4.
    - The Intel P4 has the fastest available desktop processor - currently at 3.06GHz, I think
    - Intel chips are slightly less prone to overheating (this only affects overclockers)
    - AMD-compatible motherboards tend to be cheaper than Intel-compatible ones.

    So if you've got money to burn, go with P4.
    The AMD Athlon XP is much better value for money, though.

    Anyone know any different?

    If you have money to burn go with the P4 and use rambus RAM - the performance increase will be noticeable - although there's now dual channel DDR for AMD with the NForce2 chipsets.

    This is my system:-

    Athlon XP 2000+
    512MB PC2100 RAM
    ASUS A7N8X Motherboard
    Gainward Geforce3 Ti200 64mb

    Haven't had a performance issue with it, can run Unreal2 at 1152x864 perfectly with all the highest detail options clicked.

    The next AMD will be a new XP with 512kB cache too.
    After this the AMD will bring out a 64bit cpu the first one that comes out will probably have 1MB(!&#33 cache later they will bring one with 256KB.

    My old AMD K7 1GHZ runs good on my cheap ass mobo with only 256MB PC-133 RAM
    Works even better with Windows NT or XP (same thing)

    I think that's the Barton core on the Athlon XP 3000+
