    how stoned are you?

    P4 good,

    Athlon XP equally good

    Celeron BAAAD

    but if you are that confused, the processor isn't gunna make a difference.. you'l have burned your studio down before you use it..

    AMD is as good Intel and Intel is as good as AMD.

    Both platforms have their issues now and then.

    Yea fo real, you're actually better off with the AMD from what I hear, but I'm not gonna get into that... Trust us, you'll be perfectly fine with the AMD.

    Celerons are fine if you arent taxing the processor (in multitracking computers for instance). And they run cooler.

    there is some debate between wheter and AMD XP/64 or Intel P4 is better. however, everyone pretty much agrees that Celeron is worthless. it suffers mainly from an insufficient cache.

    tech tv did a great show on amd versus intel.

    they are virtually equal on almost all accounts from what i gathered.. but the new amd 64 out performed the high end p4's on everything except graphic usage. photoshop and illustrator seemed to run better on the p4's... but the benchmarks they had on their site were almost identical for everything.

    i can certainly recommend amd because im running a dual processor amd unit and it just SMOKES any of my friends' computers. amd is generally less expensive too... which is a major plus obviously.

    just realize this fact..

    AMD CPU's get physically hotter faster then a P4 cpu. i know that might sound weird but i have seen some crazy **** with them in my day [ie: melted plastic around the cpu].

    you've been warned

    Pentium 4's get as hot as AMD processors.

    The Athlon 1400+ processor did get very hot indeed. With the transition to .13 micron processes newer Barton processors shouldn't get too hot even with a stock heatsink.
