Just like the subject asks, which is better. I mean, I guess the question could be refrased to say which is faster, but maybe someone knows something else to look for in a motherboard and processor, that I don't. I was checking out an ASUS motherboard with an 800 mhz fsb, that requires an intel chipset, and was wondering if anthalon had anything that might compare. I was also wondering if the speed of the fsb makes a very big diference. Thanks in advance for your response.

Yes and no, it all depends on which benchmark numbers are important to you. The last time I was in the market, Athlon was well above the nearest Intel competitor. But that was a year and a half ago. I like competition, and like that Athlon gives me a choice and is making Intel work. Thus, I support AMD with my money.

Athlon does generally run hotter than Intel, but they're all hot and getting more difficult to cool.

It's Athlon BTY, the best thing to do is, do searches for hardware benchmarking, right now i'm not sure who's in the lead, both companies put out a very good product, but they use different methods for getting there, so you can't just look at cpu speed or fsb speed to determine overall performance, it's more complicated than that. Look at what your going to use the system for and find benchmarking for that application.
