    got loads of spares around the house at the moment and am looking to build a new rig in a lian li v300 but am not sure which of these chips to use the first is a pentium 4 2.8c sck 478 i had this on an old asus p4c800 board and it was a cracker but i have a matx board for it now or the other is an amd 64 3000+ sck 754 which is a good little chip now which of these would be the best bet for a rig :confused:

    What're you going to be doing with it?

    For games etc I'd use the 3000+, but for things like folding and video encoding the p4 MAY be a little faster.

    For games the 3000 should still beat the p4, simply due to it's architecture. Any information on the cache these chips have got, as it'd be helpful?
