If you could have one which one would you build a pc around asuming you have $1000 to blow on just a cpu? I know most of you have been saying that AMD is ahead of Intel for the past year. But i think this time intel has caught up. I also wanted to know some things about the new 600 series of P4: Can you replace a 500 series P4 socket 775 and throw in a 600 and not have to replace the mobo? Will Longhorn be 64 bit only? How do these perform against AMD's A64?

the fx-55 is the faster processor and runs cooler but it isnt that much faster only by a small margin both cpu's are 64bit so no need to worry bout the 64bit longhorn as intel has emt64 on the new 600 series cpu's and also amd is 64bit. and yes you can use the motherboard you currently have :) hope that helps

the P4 3.73 EE isn't really faster then a P4 3.4 EE (which had 512k more cache)
