    the AMD by a mile.
    first off: faster rated processor that can actually beat EE series processors and far higher clocked processors.
    second: it has a 9800XT 256 which beats the **** out of an fx5700 256.

    aaahmmm, i'd like to say google it... there are tons of benchmarks on this topic...

    and for your rig, i'd say it's better for gaming because considering the video card alone (9800XT)... men that card rocks big time!!

    9800XT :)
    5700 :rolleyes:

    When you compare top of the line Athlon64 vs top of the line P4 (EE or not EE), AMD wins in almost every gaming benchmark at the present moment.

    The 5700 is a HORRIBLE Direct X 9 card, he has no bragging rights.

    yeah I concure the AMD A64 is a far better CPU for gamming than ANY P4 out there ! I also think that the AMD CPU ROCKS !!! no P4 can compete with mine at all !!! if so bring it on intell bring it on !!
