You're wrong (a newbie's exception). The Athlon 64 is actually the coolest ever! The Athlon Xp, however, generates enough to fry an egg (there was a thread on this).

The Athlon XP 3200+ bottlenecks a 9800 Pro. Now, this year's generation of cards are twice (or more) as fast as the 9800 Pro (especially the 6800 and X800). So do the math.
