An AMD 3200+ is good, and its equivellant in speed to a Pentium 4 3.2GHz.. Its quite fast to.

Get the 64 bit though..
So, an AMD 64 3200+ chip with a Venice core would be smoking for you..

Here it is for 190.. exellent!

take a look at www.tomshardware.com , it has nice guide to CPU's which you may find of interest.

But i tend to agree with the above post and would take a look at the AMD 64

Anything is good when it comes to Athlon, but as everyone says go 64 or go home haha. Or the FX processor or 64 dual cores haha. if you got money role deep. Lay down your spec's you dont even or do you know what your mother board will handle.

Like I said, the 3200+ Venice core uses SSE3 instruction sets and has VERY GOOD OCing potentials. It runs ICE COLD at stock speeds, and doesn't gain a lot of heat even with a hefty OC. Very good good processor.
