And if you play Quake III based games like Mohaa, COD, RTCW, and JK2,JK3, the P4 cpu is the one to buy. It hands down beat any AMD chip in this category.
Athlon64 is faster in games then P4 3.2 GHz.
Video and Audio encoding depends on the programs you are using, but when Windows XP 64 bit comes out, AMD64 will also be faster, you can not run windows XP64 bit on a P4, so it is not a realy future proof buy.
Toms Hardware Site is a joke !
