Pentium 4 or Amd Athlon XP?

I have read some of the threads on this subject,
but am still not sure.
My choice is between a Pentium 4 2.5ghz or AMD Athlon XP 2400+ CPU.
I won't be playing games, but edit lots of images.
Please help me decide????

Theres not a lot in it unless you are going to be diong a lot of 3d rendering, go for the pc with the largest ammount of RAM for image editing.

XP. but Ditto above go for 768mb>1gb ram for photo's that is more important

specs for the software, if you doing it professionally then the software you use may be enhanced by certain CPU's. like 3Ds Max which i use is enhanced by intel p4 cpu's.

if you'll just be using standard software for personal use then i'd go for AMD's, more bang for your buck.

Athlon XP for me, nice and quick under Windows, especially under Windows XP and along with 256mb or 512mb will run very good.
