I am sure this has been brought up before, but I can't say that I remember what everyone said about the differences so here goes. How does the AMD T-bird Athalon stack up against a Intel Pentium 4? Is it 100% software and hardware compatible? Is there any good reason it is less expensive than a P4? I ask because I have the opportunity to get a PC with the AMD in it for a decent price. If this was the same system, with the same speed Intel chip, the price would be about ~$200 more, and I don't think I could swing it. Thanks in advance.

the athlon T-bird is a great processor, much better then the p4 at just about every benchmark. Right now I use a T-bird with a 266mhz FSB this is most likely what you want. Just realise that to run this chip at a 266mhz FSB you need to use DDR. All in all, this is the best bang for the buck.
