Athlon64 Vs P4 discuss.

  Aspman 11:01 05 Mar 2004

My mate is after a high performance machine for his graphical work (and probably just because he wants one).

I was wondering if anyone could offer up a performance/£ opinion of high end P4 (3GHz+) against the Athlon64 processors. I have heard that the 64s are higher performing then P4s even using 32bit windows but I'm also aware that there are several flavours of the 64 bit processors.

Is it worth getting a 64bit processor in anticipation of 64bit windows?

Overclocking capability isn't an issue just performance, price, reliability, ease of install etc.

I'd also be interested in recommendations/advice for SATA drives and 18"+ TFT monitors with digital input.

Thanks in advance
