XPs don't get as hot as P4s do.
actually Athlon XP's get hotter than P4's but they can withstand more heat than the P4's can
Athlon XP's melt at about 85 and can withstand about a maximum of 65-70 without losing much stability
P4's melt at about 60 and usually operate about 45
I'd get a mobile Athlon 64 3200+ and a mobility Radeon 9600 Pro/XT
XT can overclock and underclock itself automatically when needed so it has an advantage
512MB RAM should be enough but don't go higher than a gig
