A year from now, we'll be talking about quad cores as they start to become popular, lol. Another reason why I chose AMD is because of the cooler core. Is that spec for the P4 using Prescott? If so, you're in for a warm treat. Athlon 64's generally run cooler. I'm running 31 degrees right now on a warm Spring afternoon. How incredible is that? I'm not even using a fancy case either. Just simple 80mm fans and stock AMD cooling. WOW!!!
