AMD Barton 3000 vs P4

I have heard the AMD Barton 3000 can beat an P4 2.8 Ghz with HT. Is this true?

Which do you suggest for starting a small hosting company which will host quite a few forums, most phpbb or IPB 1.3.

Any insite would be greatly appreciated.

Also, on a side note. Is an SCSI that much better than an ATA Hard Drive? I can get either for the same price, but the ATA has over triple space.

It's a pretty close race, and depends on what version of the P4 2.8 it is. I would pick the CPU based on the price in this case as the performance is pretty closely matched. As far as the hard drives are concerned, it depends if you are concerned with performance or capacity. SCSI drives DESTROY normal ATA drives, but again they are much smaller.
