Also overclocking isnt easy or safe and in order to get the pentium up to the speed you want you would have to spend more money on cooling than it would have cost just to buy the x2 in the first place. The intel CPUs give out huge amounts of heat and the x2s while hotter than the single core athlons they are still cooler than the P4s and the stock HSF you get with AMD cpus is quite good.

If you are into overclocking the X2 is the way to go, i havent heard of anyone being able to overclock the P4s on any affordable air cooling. They are really really hot chips.
If you are using the best of video editing software some of the more powerful P4s will have a slight advantage(software like that they have given "grants" to develop its features to suit there CPUs, they do the same with alot of commercial software).
But these CPUs are all so fast you cant really notice it when both the cores are fully utilised.
The AMDs have a big single core advantage as well, they run very well simultaneously as independant cores as well so games like the x2s.
So i would say the x2s as the p4s are only really good at a few things the x2s are good at everything.
