P4 or Athlon for server platform?

Howdy all,

we're about to purchase some server gear for our Melbourne-based LAN gaming
events (~300-400 players) and we're trying to decide between the Athlon or
P4 platforms.  I'm fairly set on an Athlon 2500+ on an nForce2 board with
either 512MB or 1GB RAM, however, we're also considering some of the lower
end P4 offerings.

We can't really spend much more than AU$900 on each machine so we're on a
bit of a budget, although if the P4 offers *that much more* performance,
then we might be able to strech it a tad.

thanks in advance,
