What would you rather have Athlon's FASTEST XP chip with 1gig of RAM(your choice) or Intel's FASTEST chip with 1gig of RAM your choice?

amd vs athalon

im waiting for the Hammer from amd then this is the set up

AMD Hammmer 2g+
1 gig+ of pc2700ram (333mhz)
ata 133 hd in raid 0 config
agp 8x
usb2.0

never get built in anything. sound video nic etc.. it will use more cpu than a card will and usally not have any extras

one of the main reasons I chose the Hammer is because it will have 3dnow, 3dnow pro,sse1,sse2 instruction sets so as applications and game make use of either set it will make your computer run faster as it gets older. (to an extent) if you get the intel tit only hase the sse1 and sse2. so anything made specficly for 3dnowpro will not be as fast on it.

and of course the normal reason people choose AMD over Intel
Better performance at a better price.

LET ME REMIND YOU THIS IS MY OPINION DO NOT FLAME ME FOR IT.

good read, although i'm so sick of the "intels are more stable" thing, i've built over 30 amd machines in the last year and have zero problems. hmph maybe i'm just lucky

it all depends on how much you want to spend and if pure processor speed means anything to you. intel holds the crown for pure processor speed, while amd holds the crown for performance to price.

p4 2.4 with rambus is the fastest setup right now comparing to those two, well see what the new generation of chips will have though.
