With all the processors suggested so far, they seem to be mostly single core. Will I even see a difference If I go with a 64 opetron or mobile 64 vs my Pentium 4 3ghz right now? Because if these processors aren't going to perform better than my Pentium 4 then I'll stick with it and maybe get a new water cooling system.

I have a P4 2.8c @ 3.6 and as for benchmarks and games it doesn't quite keep up.  If you are just going to play games then AMD would be the pick hands down.  If you do mostly video editing and the like I would say that the Intel has the advantage.  If you want a comparison to an x2 3800 run some sisoft sanda benches and I'll underclock mine down to the 3800's speeds and bench the same ones and post if you'd like.  My 175 @ 2.6 destroys my Intel in every bench and in games (Intel has a 6800ultra and AMD has SLI 7800gtx's so its not comparing apples to apples).  For the money I would still say the Opteron 165 dual core, if you could ever find one.
