If the cost is not factor, go with P4 2.53Ghz.If price matters, go with XP 2100+This article will be very useful for you.Also, I would suggest to post this kind of questions in hardware forum because more people will see it there.The article:http://www.tomshardware.com/cpu/02q2/020402/index.html

Since when is tomshardware reliable? He used to be paid by AMD and other hardware manufacturers (mainly videocard and mobo-manufacturers) to recommend their products.When not, he just selected the product that could be overclocked the most and called that the best.That said, the article seems unbiassed :-) so maybe they have indeed seen the light :-waveWonder what the AMD adepts will say now that their main defender is saying Intel is faster (which was their only, and debatable) argument.

2.53Ghz - few percent faster than 2100+ for double price :-roll

The price of the top end Pentium 4's really isn't justified when you will only get a small increase in performance over the vastly cheaper XP 2100+ (or even the XP 2000+).AMD still offer the best in price/performance ratio.Chris Low,ENGLAND.
