Rest of the system is the same and the price is more or less the same.

So which would you go for...

3.0GHz P4 530 or AMD Athlon 64 3000?

...for a gaming system.

AMD all the way but make sure it is a 939 cpu

I would suggest AMD 64. If you choose the Intel make sure it uses HyperThreading (HT) Technology

AMD: good for game and complcated mathematical computation

P4: video and audio encording and editing

The 3.0GHz P4 530 does support HT technology.

What about if I throw the 3.2ghz P4 into the equation? As the system with that processor is only a few quid more.

Might find this interesting as you will see a AMD Sempron is far better than a celeron!
