Fans should cool well.

BUT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DONT GET INTEL GO WITH AMD THEY ARE SOOOOOOOO MUCH BETTER.

That being said the Athlon 64's are unmatched by intel. The athlon is a 64bit chip as compared to intel's 32 bit chips. I dont have time to explain it but intel has a middle man in their route to giving info to the ram which amd does not so amd is faster as well. AMD is definately your best option here.
