Maby a bad question cause of AMd lovers and p4 lovers, but anyone who knows if I should go for AMD or p4 800Mhz processor. I heard before AMD is better on gaming, but is that still the same or is the p4 (800 Mhz fsb) better?

More about : amd 800mhz

Right now I'd say the P4 is a better buy, especially the 2.8 and 3.0 with 800 FSB as those offers better performance and lower price than it's AMD equivalents.

My system: AMD Athlon XP 3000+ / TwinMOS 1Gb DDR400 / Soltek 75FRN-RL /
Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro / Antec True Power 550W / Western Digital Raptor / Hercules GTXP SC /
Samsung DVD / Lite-On CDRW

baaad question indeed :smile: .

But I'd have to say that the 800Mhz FSB models are the appropriate choice right now. They also have the added bonus of HT (aside from the pathetically high memory bandwidth).

Right now i would go with a p4 800Mhz, but make sure you buy a good motherboard.

Lets not forget the 2.4c. One heck of an over clocker.

Sure, another excellent choice.

On the low end of the market or the non-overclocking market, i'd say you were best with amd. If you are going top end of the market (say over 2400mhz/prr then probally intel is the better choice.

Power for dollar it's tough to beat the AXP 1700+ & nforce2 board... especially with a bit of overclockin love.
