    Hey, I was just wondering how the P4 does with gaming. Im new to pc gaming, getting a custom pc soon, and am wondering how the framerate is with the 3.0. Im not looking at AMD because the processor is for a pci-express motherboard, and im having trouble finding companies that have the option of an amd pci-e motherboard. Just want to new if the framerate will be laggy or smooth, considering Iv'e never seen this extreme HT processors or AMD 64 FX processors in action.

    Pretty much any CPU over 2.5GHz or with a 2.5 Ghz rating will be great for gaming. Your frame rates will be largely impacted by the video card you choose to buy and amount of memory but mostly video card in a new system.

    There are several AMD 64 motherboards with PCI-e. Here's just one: http://usa.asus.com/products/mb/socket939/a8nsli-d/overview.htm

    I prefer AMD over Intel myself, AMD are cheaper, and are great processors, When you buy Intel, your paying too much for a name :(
    (of course Intel is better then Cyrix!)
