Default Athlon XP, 64 bit or 64 bit FX???

I know you guys probably get this all the time...but which should I go with? An Athlon XP, Athlon 64 bit or Athlon 64 bit FX? I think the FX is out of my pricerange, but I won't rule it out. I want to get a mobo with four DDR DIMM slots (Max memory 4 gbs) preffereably. Is it worth it to go with Socket A anymore? Or should I go for 754 or 939? What's the main price difference? I'd like to spend between $200-230 Canadian on the CPU, $80-120 on mobo, $100-150 on RAM and $50 bucks on an el cheapo vid card (Will get better one when prices drop). So is it 64 bit or plain old 32 bit for me???...that is the question.
