The Athlon XP outperforms Pentium in everything that I personally do on a computer. For instance, video encoding is almost three times as fast on the athlon, also, when I unrar or rar something, it is way faster. So I will never buy a pentium ever again. They are just more popular because of the commercials, trust me on this one. Athlon isn't that expensive anyway. Stay away from duron and celeron, and go ahead and get the Athlon. You won't be disappointed.
