I don't know much about AMD so I'll abstain from commenting on that.
A design guy at my office had a PC running on a Mac TFT monitor. The color was VERY true, as that's what Macs do. :) If you want an LCD monitor, go with a nice Mac TFT and make sure you have a good video card.

Dude, i have the best solution for you for your monitor question. Since your going to upgrade anyway, get a nice video card, i have a ATi Radeon 9800 Pro, this takes 2 monitor ports or dual monitor support, hook up the TFT monitor on one port and the CTR on the other. Check out my setup:
LCD on the left and CRT on the right, both 19" monitors Sorry about the quality of the pics, i took them with my mobile.
So now you can check your colour corrections or have Photoshop on one monitor and notepad or dreamweaver on the other.

Clearly you don't have much requirement for swinging cats ;)

We've had some discussion [webmasterworld.com] about AMD vs Intel. I believe it's immaterial which one you choose. Windows isn't 64 bit. By the time there's a stable 64 bit Windows OS 64 bit would have moved on. Buy AMD for features other than 64 bit. Or Intel for features other than EM64T.
Processor speed is largely irrelevent for most people. Any modern CPU is likely to be good enough. I prefer CRT but, if you get a good Sony or Iiyama LCD then you'll probably be OK. Compare LCD colour with CRT at your local PC shop.

So are we saying that there is currently no advantage in buying a 64 bit chip?

Not to run Windows XP.

Any more opinions?

I have been reading some reports that suggest that the AMD does offer advantages over Pentium 4?

"Beta" - but works fine & stable:
