AMD Processors with V8?

I am looking into our required hardware upgrades as of late. Personally,
I have an affinity towards Athlon processors, (64's, 3200+ 2ghz etc.)
Anyone have experience with implementation of these on workstations?
Almost every computer in our shop is being replaced, and the price point
is much better. If not I suppose I will be looking at a generation back
on P4 3+ghz, 2 gig ram.



Essentially I would be matching Epicor's requirements with an AMD chip,
but I realize the architecture is different enough that if Epicor's code
isn't optimized for it I may find a dog running more doggedly.



Thanks,
