    In general AMD processors have their graphics cards integrated right into the chip, and most Intel chips have the ability to run OSX, so it really depends what you want to do with it. I use both for what I need to do with them. .....

    ibjsb4,
    Not sure which one.

    A friend is offering me a Pentium 4 computer. I already have the Athlon computer with 1GB ram. I'll only accept the Pentium 4 computer if it's better than my Athlon.

    Maybe download http://www.phoronix-test-suite.com/?k=pts_desktop_live or something similar and run it on both machines? The amount of RAM installed can also make a difference, especially with 64 bit OS s.

    The Athlon 64 3800+ is better/faster than ANY P4 Intel released. It's slightly faster than a Intel Core2 Duo T5270

    Mips,
    Thanks. In that case, I could say "No Thanks" to any P4 offer from my friend.

    Not that far back I don't think. Like for like in them days I believed AMD had the edge, but as everyone says it depends what you wanna do with it.

    Just bump up the RAM on your Athlon setup, will help a lot. I gave my Athlon 64 with 2GB RAM & 7600GT GPU to my folks when I upgraded, it's still running fine to this day with Win7 on it.
