Looking to upgrade to a fast middle end system. I was thinking of the following:

mobo: asus p5ad2-e premium
proc: Intel P4 530 3.0 ghz
vid card: radeon x800 xl

I'm not biased towards Intel or amd in any way but I know little to nothing about amd processors.

1. What would an amd setup thats in this performance range be?
2. Would it be cheaper?

to put in into short, amd is good for gaming and Intel is more geared towards 3d and video editing.

Ok let me rephrase the question. What AMD processor and motherboard could I get for under $400?

Assuming your videocard is PCI-E:

A64 3500+ $278
Chaintech VNF4-Ultra VE $110

Total: $388.
