Yes, the Athlon64 4400+ X2 Toledo is a very nice processor. I would be pleased with it if I were to build my own this moment. So good decision.

Get an AMD Athlon 64 4000+. They perform better than a 4200+

first of all your gunna want to upgrade to x64 if your running that proc and your also gunna wanna get some pc4000 memory because that Proc sends and recieves through one memory controller which means it sends at 4400+ speeds and your 3200+ RAM isnt gunna keep up. That is just my opinion.

Windows xp x64 is not worth it. Most software is 32 bit so its a pain to get drivers or whatever and what not. Its also a bit buggy so i may as well wait to get vista. And I have no clue what you are talking about with the memory thing.

Correct Windows XP 32bit is the better option mate. Many apps still do not support 64bit and many crash. As 64bit is all still new if I were you I would stay with a 32Bit OS.

You are wrong about the memory thing. 4400+ is the model number for the processor. It has nothing to do with memory. 3200 is how much bandwidth the memory has.
