Is my 2.4ghz pressy better than the athlon 64 3000+ 939???

A friend and I did a mini land party, and I were faster than him, I oced to 2.9 and he kept its 3000+ @ 1800mhz. We have 1gb of ram, the only difference is the video, mine is trash R9200SE and his is x800xt.

I want to change to 64 bits, and the 3000+ seems to be a cheap solution.

Is better or not??

No, its not.

The 3000+ has a higher operating frequency and a higher fsb

If you were to take your Prescott from 2.4 to 3.4GHz and an Athlon Venice 3000+ 1.8GHz to 2.6GHz then the Athlon would be better in all games. In multi-tasking, video encoding and database reorganizing the Intel would complete tasks more quickly.

In day to day productivity you would not see much difference in either.

With regards to heat production, the Intel is ~30% hotter than a comparible Athlon.

Well i bet you can take that 2.4 to 3.83 on some AS5 and good HTF, and no need to upgrade, the 64-bit doesnt improve a whole lot, so i would suggest saving for a better system, pissibly AM2/Conroe, or just get a better GPU too

that 2.9 P4 would probably be just a bit better than a 3000+ at 1.8. But Ropey pretty much sum'd it up. P4=better multiple tasking, and the AMD is better in gamming, based off equal clocks. You won't notice a difference really, only in benchmarks. 64-bit windows is nothing special either. Save your money for something in the future.

Well, the only multitask that I do are very light.

Edonkey sometimes in background, a tv tunner playing tv often, messenger, winamp or mediaplayer, word. at the same time.

When I have to burn a cd I only run the burner.

Need something more!!!

for almost 300$ I can get a good board and a 3000+ new
