savyj: I agree that the performance is really close but there is a difference. The other thing u have to realize is only certain DDR setups will do so. Some will not but we all know that already. The facts are simply:
P4 runs cooler..........
P4 systems run quieter..........
VIA chipsets are not as stable as P4 based chipsets(not all P4 chipsets but most)
Anyway i am not against AMD, in fact the oposite. I am just sick and tired of the issues like noise, heat etc... compared to P4.
