I have used Athlon XP 2000 running on (1.6 GHz), Sempron 2400 (1.6 GHz)
these machines i have used for almost for 3 years and are still working
fine. I would suggest that you go in for a good motherboard with these
processors, mine were ASUS with nivida chipset.
(BTW if you are going for AMD processor don't get confused with the numbers
like XP 2000 or 2400 there are the model numbers and not the processors
speed. Look at the process-box, somewhere in corner in small letters they
have given the actual speed!! ;) )
Other latest purchase is a AMD turion 64 bit laptop. And i am happy with its
performance also and have also not observed and severe heating problems
though i have used the laptop for more than 6 hours at a stretch.
