Which is better Intel Celerdon D 351 3.2Ghz or AMD Athlon 64 3200+ [closed]

I have two machines, and I want to make one into a media center. No sure which one to pick.

"the Athlon 64 3200+ is the better performer of the two (by a far cry).

SuperPi (1m calcs): 44 sec vs 71 sec

even the Sempron 3200 (AMDs low cost counterpart to Intel's Celeron series) beats the the Celeron D351 by almost 30% in benchmarks, it certainly is no match for the Athlon with its 512 L2 cache."

I own an AMD Athlon 64 3000+; it's a very capable CPU. In my opinion, the AMD CPU is way better than the Celeron. Also, I found it's pretty quiet and has no heating problems, which is always important on a media center machine.
