A single top-of-the-line AMD chip will beat a P4 in most applications. I don''t know why you''d buy a dual processor board unless you wanted to show off . Of course, the dual board would cost the same as the P4 and RDRAM, heh. But, in the end, you don''t REALLY need anything that powerful for programming.

Currently i am building a new computer w/ some parts of my old one i am using now. I am running currently a p3 600mhz, geforce3, 10x DVDROM, 12x burner. Now that i am building a new computer i am thinking about what things i should get. Well here is what i am between. A Duel AMD MP 1.2ghz or a Singlechip intel p4 2.0ghz? I have no idea. I love programming with opengl and love gaming. I want to know what i should pick? Please post your comments... Thanx!

I built a computer for a friend and used a AMD chip (Duron 800) it gave me nothing but trouble. When I sent it back and got an Intel chip of the same speed I had almost not trouble.
