Overall, I don't think either setup will make much of a significant difference. The XP would be slightly better for gaming.

I'll go with the AMD, back when they were still king. The Willamettes were pretty bad.

thanks, I was thinking the xp would be better, but wasn't sure if the memory would effect it much anyway. also, since the P4 supports sse2 and the xp doesn't, ya think that would effect modern day performance much, or the xp would still crush it? ty
