    This forum is great, usually at PCmech topics like this kick off into a fanboy war right away, nice work! Anyway, my 2 systems:

    466 Celeron, 66MHz FSB
    1.8GHz Celeron, 400MHz FSB (Soon to be replaced with a 2.8GHz C P4 :D)

    Yeah the mods here are really good, and the boards tend to be kept squeaky clean.

    AMD all the way.
    reasons:
    Price. they are at least £150 less then the eq Intel chips
    Speed. usually a bit faster too
    OC'ing potential.
    plus AMD aren't in league with Satan(micro$oft)

    Actually, AMD are more in league with Microsoft with any other, since AMD depend on Microsoft to make the 64-bit OS that is needed. :D

    erm, prices roughly from memory, p4c 2.8-3.0ghz ~£150
    a64 3000+ ~£160, both comparable cpus, each better at different tasks.

    both overclocking to about the same on superpi.
