A new CPU.

Intel's P4 can have 64-bit now which levels out this playing field. Look for EM64T and you'll enjoy either 64-bit machine for many years.

AMD for now, but what do you want

In reply to: is the intel pentium 4 with ht better or is amd athalon 64

Look at it this way:
Intel HT - 32 strong capable workers doing a task
AMD - 64 workers doing the same task

Up to you. 64bit simply is better at doing tasks, plus you can improve on it and have even more capabilities as time goes by. Meaning, as any cpu before it, gets improved upon. Plys 64bit is the wave of the future and so far has proved capable.
