the best are Athlon 64 or X2

If you get a 64 get either a venice or san diego core (san diego is best)

FX-57 would definitely be preffered for gaming, if you can afford one.

Seeing as how 64-Bit os's are makin their step onto the market and will be the future, stick with a 64-Bit CPU. They usually cost a little more but they are well worth it. The socket 939 CPU 3000+ Venice would be a good budget buy, the 3700+ San Diego is a good medium but and the FX-57 is a good expensive buy. Cant we get some details on your budget?

there are:
Athlon's (the first ones)
Athlon XP's
Athlon MP's (for servers, based on Athlon XP's)
Athlon 64's
Opterons (for servers, similar to Athlon 64's)
and Athlon X2's (dual core athlon 64's)

Athlon XP's are the last generation, anything below about a 2500+ and it'd be considered out of date. the current generation are socket 939 Athlon 64's and now Athlon X2's. the Athlon 64's go up to 4200+, or the FX-57. the X2's go from 4200+ to 4800+ and are pretty expensive ATM

In that case, I would suggest the AMD 64 Socket 939 3200+.

I have a 64 2800+. I'm gonna upgrade to a 3200+ Venice. Perhaps, 64 3700+ depending on my budget at the time.
