This oughta help you out. but just in case, the main difference is the achitecture.one out performs the other in some aspect of the computer age. it just depends on whether or not you are looking for better office power or better gaming power.
for what it's worth, my AMD gives me almost the same amount of speed as the intel in the office department.
Also, AMD doesn't run quite as hot as intel, plus AMD can be overclocked a little better then Intel. but some of the intel diehards will say its the otherway around.
I have to admit though the number or motherboards with melted intel processors over AMD is staggering, at least in my part of the world.

There are many an AMD fanatic that will tell you AMD is better, and give you 8 gazillion reasons why. I have no issue with their chips, I just havent used them much at all. I have used intel for a long long time, and never really had problems.
its all a matter of what you want to do with the system, and what price suits you, etc.

Their is this old infamous video on the heat issues....
Non-bias suggestion just go with what you like, have hardcore gamers I know that use P4 only and intel, though most are AMD.

but I know that p4s overheat less because of some underclocking feature they have.
