o.k...that's a whole lot of advice...and it sounds good so far...but isn't a high end Athlon 3200 better, and worth buying than a low end AMD 64 3000/3200?? I know I might sound stupid, but I'm just starting out in messing with PC hardware...so please try to give examples and try to explain it more carefully...thanks guys.
