    Depends on what you like...in a lot of benchmark tests, the Athlon 64 toasted the PIV's, but in others, the PIV's dominated...for audio intensive applications (Cubase SX) or gaming, I have to lean towards the Athlon 64's...but that's just me...

    I'd also add that it depends on what you plan on using that PC for - the Athlon and PIV's both excel under different loads and demands...
