Question AMD Athlon 2600 "Barton Core"??

Hey guys, I was wondering how good is the AMD Athlon XP 2600...
Is it worth buying at all? And most of all, what the hell is that barton thing, and what is it for...thanks.

The Barton core uses a manufacturing process of 0.13 micron with a L2 cache of 512k and has a total of over 54 millions transistors.
The name of the core tells us the tech specs used in manufacturing.

For example Thoroughbred cores have only 256KB of L2 cache.
