That used to be the case when the A64's rules supreme. Currently, Intel has a sizable advantage when it comes to bang for the buck, in my opinion.

Instead of the Phenom CPU you have listed, I would consider an Intel Q6600 (quad core 2.4ghz, $275.00). You can easily overclock it in excess of 3ghz, if desired.
