As I mentioned earlier tonight the AMD through me out of a net game when I went back to CloneDVD (after 1 Hour still reading). I run 2xfolding at once at ALL times. I can run anything I want and it wont affect the game i'm playing at all. Now if you say that you can play games on your AMD while it runs (it nearly pauses) other apps in the background without odd pauses/slowing down. Then your talking crap.
As usual it looks like I'm AMD bashing, I'm not. I was one of AMD biggest fans. I still build many more AMD's than I do P4's. But you wont find someone who uses both the fastest AMD and the Fastest P4, who prefers the AMD. That's because when you use both you know the P4 is the best.
Another good site is www.over-clock.co.uk
some of the guys have really monsterous PC's Mach II GT cooling and a Vapochill for the graphics card etc. Most have AMD's. Pose the question to any of them, what machine do you prefer for everyday use. Dispite having some of the fastest AMD's on the planet. They will pick the P4.
Just a taster of one of the PC's thier that Beat mine at 3dmark01
AMD1700+ running at 2936Mhz I thing it get's around 35000.
