    no options , by far the best is the Athlon64 bit FX-51

    followed close behind by the Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz-C Extreme

    quote from this web site

    http://www.hardavenue.com/ultimatepc.shtml

    Regardless of who&#39;s side your on in the CPU wars, breaking the 3.0GHz barrier like the Pentium4 has is one heck of a feat. There is no doubt that the new line of Pentium 4&#39;s are here to deliver serious performance for the serious PC user, and what is more serious than gaming? This CPU is even more souped up than your average Pentium4, with 2MB of L3 cache, or in other words, a gaming aimed Xeon without MP support. Although AMD&#39;s latest Athlon64 range is putting up one hell of a fight, if not surpassing Intel&#39;s chips, at the time of writing (October 2003), the FX-51

    There is no alt&#39;s to these 2 chips , dont be fooled , the others arnt even in the same league

    Maximum PC ran several test and the Intel P4 EE one most of them and they crowned it as the best, better then the FX and the Apple G5. AMD and Intel are pretty much your only options like he said...

    IMO, intel are much better quality than AMD but i still prefer AMD because of the price.

    intel&#39;s beter quality because of there thrttling capabilities, if the heatsync wer to all off or fan stop working the cpu will reduce its Mhz speed and become cooler until proper cooling is supplied. amd would catch on fire if this happened...

    ...i have a video...
