if you dont overclock and you use a varity of applications the Athlon XP 1800 tends to outpreform the Pentium 4 1.8Ghz on commanly used benchmarked sutes.
I think with DivX 5 this applys to DVD ripping - THG showed that an Athlon XP 2000 outprformed a Pentium 4 2Ghz by a small margin.

FatBurger, 11.5*150= approx 1.73GHz so it's AXP 2100+. Just raise the voltage to 1.85V and you should be able to get to that speed but at a 150MHz FSB. So therefore, an overclocked AXP1800+ should outperform a 2.2GHz P4.
