Trading up CPU's

345 8
Hiya guys. I'm about to pour my nerdy heart and soul into a build, and I'm almost done all the planning. I just want to double check something. Do you guys think I would get a very noticeable performance increase If i move from a 2.2GHZ Amd Athlon XP with 512 cache to a 2.4A P4 Intel with 1 meg cache clocked at around 3.2-3.6 ghz? I'd really hate to put all this time into it and have it be a big flop and a slap across the face.

stick w/ AMD and make your goal 3Ghz... a 3Ghz AMD is roughly equivalant to a 4.5Ghz Intel... so especailly in games you'll get better performance with an AMD system.

just get a 3700+SD. the new ones are clocking about as high as the opterons.
