-Pentium M

-Athlon XP (There used to be a server variant of this processor)
-Athlon 64 (the FX line is part of this line)
-Athlon 64 X2

You can't really do it. Different CPU's excel at different things.

A Pentium M can beat a Turion 64 at audio-encoding, but it loses by quite a margin in data compression.

The same with Pentium 4 vs. Athlon 64; the 64 wins massively in gaming, but it loses by a fair margin in music and video-encoding.

You need to know what you use your system most for, then check out some benchmarks.
Windows XP Pro 17" LCD Monitor (1280 x 1024)
nForce3 250 Chipset Athlon 64 2800+ w/ C'n'Q
1 x 512MB DDR400 CL3 SDRAM 40GB IDE 7,200rpm HDD (8MB Cache)
nVidia GeForce MX420 64MB PCI On-Board Audio
