Hi all,

I would like an advice. I'm gonna buy a PC these days and I would like
to know what do you think is the processor with best performance now a
days: Pentium 4 or Athlon XP. I've read that for programs with the code
optimized for Pentium 4 (SSE2 and multiple threads) it gets about 25%
faster. But for programs with no code optimization at all, Athlon XP is
still more powerfull. Is there any code optimization, in this sense, for
AMBER? What do you suggest??

Thanks in advance
