Ok while I have been looking around for new pc's etc I've noticed that there is Athlon 64's and Pentium 4's

why is it u can see Pentium 4's at about 3.5GHz, and Athlon's are Athlon 64 3500+ 2.2 GHz

I'm thinking it's cuz they're 64bit ... Pentium 4's are not 64 bit are they?

my dad was moaning at me about dis cuz he likes the look of pentium 4's 3.7 GHz etc but he doesn't understand bout computers lol

AMD 64's are more powerful mate, from what I have heard and read.

think of the 3500+ in the same way as the p4s 3500mhz cos amds have a much slower clock speed but MUCH better performance, but anyweay AMD64 is WAY more powerful than a p4 in just about every review I've read about them...
Pretty... What do we blow up first?
