I would definitely not suggest getting the Athlon XP 3000+- I used it for about 2 months and was extremely dissatisfied with it.
I had 512MB pc2700 in terms of RAM.

At any rate, I decided to go with what I have now (pentium 4 2.8GHz and H/T-it works), and I am still satisfied with it after using it for about a month now.

I previously had a p4 1.6GHz, which lasted very well for two years. I upgraded mostly because I was limited 512MB SDRAM.

Upgrades are cool.

Intel P4 2.8GHz H/T
1.5GB PC2700
160GB HD
Windows XP Professional

Dude, you can't talk badly about a processor until you load the RAM up.....(I know it's all opinion) but only having 512 ram in any mobo running any proc is gonna suk! My parents five year old Compaq has more RAM than that...
