Got my cooling gear together

I have a brand new watercooling setup. A 156W pelt on the chip, custom waterblock (know a CNC machinist), 3 72W pelts between an aluminum and a copper waterblock, a 200 GPH pump, a bypass valve, and an evaporative coil out of a 84 Chevy. The pelts are powered by a 14.8V/45A PS for an RV charger. (I have and extra if anyone wants to buy one). My question for anyone who cares to chime in today: Do I go with an OC AMD XP, or a P4 Northwood? Motherboard suggestions? Right now I'm debating a BD7-Raid with a 1.6A or 1.8A vs an Epox 8K3A+ with an XP 1600. Given the above cooling (or any suggestions), is the Intel system going to be worth the extra $80-$100? Thanks for ideas, I'm buying this evening. You're all swell :D
Personaly i would go with a XP and save your self a little cash. But i guess that would depend on wether you are an AMD or an Intel fan.
