Processor speeds

I'm a bit behind the times. A few years ago a reasonable comparison could be made between a pentium 1GHz processor and an Athlon 1GHz processor. Nowadays we have pentium 3.2GHz but we have Athlon 3200+. What processor speeds should you expect from the Athlon? Are they equivalent?

Thanks, so are you telling me that there is no point upgrading from an Athlon 1.4 to the 3200? I have done it, becasue I wanted to have a go at upgrading, but would like to know anyway.

I can not understand why it would have taken 4 hours?

I had an XP 2000+ with 512MB of PC2100.

To create a DVD (4.3GB) - Using Pinnacle Studio v8 - Capturing as an AVI from digital camcorder - editing and saving to mpeg - then creating it as and burning it to DVD, using Ulead DVD Movie Factory 2 would take about 2 hours all in.
