Which processor is the best, the AMD Athlon XP or the Intel Pentium 4? I was told by a sales person at a nationwide recognized electronics store that Intel processors are discontinued from their shelves because they are overpriced and take too much power from the PC, however Intel is a world known manufacturer with very good equipment. So which one?

all depends on what you will be doing the most on your machine. Games & compiling are faster on the Athlon64 platforms & media encoding is faster on P4 platforms, decisions,decisions,hope this helps,good luck...
