Default PIV Xeon vs. Athlon MP

Did any body face the problem of deciding between buying a dual processor Intel Pentium IV Xeon or an dual processor AMD Athlon MP? Have somebody already run smoothly and efficiently the CFX family of software using an AMD Athlon MP processor, integrated by the new ASUS A7M266-D motherboard? The point is that the AMD configuration costs 30% of the Intel configuration, and if ok, will probably represent a better cost/benefit solution.
