I'm currently looking into buying an AMD processor and i want it to be equivalent to a P4 Intel 3.2GHz-3.4Ghz. What AMD Athlon 64 processor would be equivalent ? Price doesn't matter... preferably a Socket 939 + 1MB L2 CPU


Thanks in Advance

Rob

Why do you want a 64 bit processor?

Why not? The Athlon 64s are better performers than equivalent P4s in 32-bit gaming applications. Put simply, a 3000+ will beat a 3Ghz P4 and a 3200+ will beat a 3.2Ghz P4 (and in some cases, the 3000+ will even beat the 3.2Ghz P4). If you do buy one of the 3000/3200+ 939 models, ensure that the motherboard you choose supports them out of the box.

The FX range is on par with Intel's Extreme Edition CPUs, and usually faster in gaming. They're not worth the ridiculous price tag though.
