So i just have a AMD Athlon 64 3000+ processor Socket 754. At the moment, I have a Pentium® 4 CPU 2.00GHz. Which of the processors is better and faster? And do you guys know what the speed of the AMD 64 3000+ is?

They're about the same performance wise and clock speed wise.

Yes they are about the same in performance wise. I like the AMD 64 over the Pentium 4. The reason is heat.
I overclock my system and heat is a major factor to me. The Pentium tends to put out more heat..

If you comparing processors its more like this, the athlon 3000+ series acts as the equivalent of a 3000MHz (3.0GHz) of a pentium (intel) processor(clock speeds and cache arn't the big players it seems, just like when ATI had less pixle piplines then Nvidea they still got top card). When you compare athlons against the pentium series, athlon (AMD) wins.
Once we get into the dual core sector however and away from the single cores, Intel (conroe) dominates the field no questions asked.

P.S. If you are comparing processors just tell us, you will be better off if your looking into buying.
