Default Computer upgrade

Ok, I finally ran into a session that my computer had a little trouble digesting.
It had lots of tracks, lots of plugs, lots of automation and the first 12 tracks were tracked at 128 - 85% so for additional external MIDI to lockup right it had to stay at 128 - 85%.
Anyway I trying to find out what the current saturation point seems to be with the current P4's, in other words the point where moving up in processor doesn't really yield more performance?
I know that on the DUC that most go with AMD but I am interested in P4's.
Thanks for any replies.

I use a p4 2.26. make sure you get a northwood processor(533 system bus)... there are faster p4s, but I think the gain you might get is fairly minimal... I have clocked mine up to 3gHz, and I barely saw a difference... I can get 32 tracks with 5 plugins on each track easy(+10 aux sends!!)

I think that motherboards chipsets and memory type also can make big differences. Everyone on the DUC are so pro-AMD, that they never gave the 2nd gen P4 a chance. too bad... it is AMAZING.
