searched on internet for benchmarks but cant seem to find any with those 2 processors in the same tests.

I think it's more of a "when" than an "if", and how does getting an Athlon XP help him get ready for an 64?
The XP is probably going to be a better buy, as it's about 30% cheaper. The P4 is indeed faster, but I don't think the added cost justifies it. Up to you. Just remember that Intel is evil ;)
Here's a review that compairs the 2 in the benchmarks, though I don't think the article itself mentions them.

If your into overcloking get a Amd athlon xp... I would get a 2000+ if your low on budget... Just overclock that baby and it will reach a p4 3.0.
If you a normal type pc person just get a p4 2.8...
i would get that Amd athlon xp because of the price and 3000+ owns p4 2.8... P4 2.8 cant overclock to much....(Becux of heat).. it takes up more pwoer in your power supply and it cost more..
Heres how it is...
Heres how a amd looks...( NOT REAL)
_______ | = a highway to transport the prossessor speed....
| | | |
| | | |
- Theres four highways which means it the transport will not be clushtered like the P4
Not this is why Pentiums are more heated than the amd....
I RECOMMAND THE AMD ATHLON XP 3000+ barton core with 400 FSB
