As a guide, with the full versions (Athlon-64 vs Pentium D), the Athlon generally outperforms the Pentium even with a 32-bit OS and you have at least the option of going to 64-bit.

Dont buy a celeron they suck. If your going to fork over the money get a Pentium 4.
Semprons arent my favorite either I wouldnt buy one. Its the cheaper/ low budget chip just like the celeron is.
By the real thing
amd 64 bit 3200+ or above or
intel pentium 4 3.0 ghz or above
Try to go with motherboards with pci express
amd chips do crappy at multi-tasking but are better at games ONLY considering with 1 program being open which would be a game. Anything other than 1 program open at a time it sucks.
Intel pentium 4 does good at multi-tasking and plays games very good. Can have a few programs running without any notice at all. Many programs open with slightly notice.
(All of the above was talking about single cpu chips) not dual core.

Not everything is in GHZ, you need to look at the cache memory. A rule of thumb is, yesterdays premium will cost the same but run much better than todays rubbish.
Think about it, would you go out with a younger ugly girl or an older pretty girl?
