    Depends how much you want to spend. If money is no object, Pentium, if you're on a budget, AMD.

    Yes, keep away from the Athlon 64, too early, and no immediate advantage. Rumours of a pin change soon, and a new micron process, so give it a while.

    this is one of those ford vs. chevy debates...or will turn into one.

    myself I like AMD, for several reasons, all of which are not tech related, but based off of personal principles. 1) No processor ID chip. 2) Microsoft dont have it's hands in AMD's pockets, like it does Intel. 3) A lot of AMD chips dont cost as much as their wintel equivilents.
    supposedly, an amd chip is faster, but at the current speeds of CPU's the only way you are really gonna see much difference is on benchtests.

    athlon 64 sucks ass. get a pentium if ur not gonna oc that much. get a amd if u plan to oc a lot. but c, a pentium doesn't need ocing, but a amd does

    yea, but a athlon 3200 is actually only like 2.2 or 2.4 ghz. while a pentium 2.4 is 2.4 and 3.2 is 3.2
