I don't know what Girish is smoking, but the absolute fastest Intel would be the P4T from Asus with a 1.8 P4 (or 2GHz if you want to wait for beginning of September).
Fastest AMD would be the Abit KG7 with a 1.4 Tbird.

With money not being an object - which is the fastest?
The AMD offering with the Abit KG7 & 1.4 Tbird OR
The Intel offering with the Asus P4T & 1.8 P4?
1) Stability is paramount
2) I don't want to tweak my life away
3) Which offering will support any future AMD/Intel offerings per their Roadmaps(such as AMD's Palamino and Intel's 2Gig CPU w/ DDRAM)...
