Personally I'd say the Athlon64 3200 or 3400 are the best deals right now. For what they are, they're pretty cheap. Your real expense (if you get a board that's really worthy of one of those processors) is going to be motherboard & ram.

Or, you can go old school, pick up yourself an AthlonXP 2500+ Barton mobile, and overclock it like mad :)

I have the AMD Athlon64 3700+ San Diego. It really is an awesome processor, runs very cool, very fast, very stable.

If budget is a real issue, the Athlon64 3200+ Venice is also a very awesome processor.

I *LOVE* it. Get the A8N32-SLI Deluxe board... I might trade in my A8N-SLI Premium for it.

Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe: Has a fan for the northbridge & some different lan, sata and audio chipsets than the premium. Has 2 PCI-E x1 ports. SLI mode is x8, x8. Single VGA is x16, x1

Asus A8N-SLI Premium: Has heatpipe for northbridge and mosfets, better LAN chipsets. Has 1 PCI-E x1 port. SLI ports are x8, x8 & x16,x1.

Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe: Awsome heatpipes on north/south and mosfets. PCI-E x4, SLI mode is true x16, x16.

Sadface, I would have to say the 3200+ Venice. 2.0 GHz under the $200. You can easily get it for $150.
