    I thought so!

    Its likely that the 3200 may be the last chip supported in your mainboard, thats the current facts anyway! however a lot of people have o/c their chips to 2.4 so its possible AMD may release a faster chip but they are not stated to do so.

    May i ask what exactly you are currently running (ie XP rating as sold and what fsb/multiplier you are currently running at?)

    Look at my specs. I am just running at stock speed... no overclock for my xp 2600 processor. Matter of fact, no overclock on anything I have!
    Here are my specs:
    System Specs: ATX generic case with Antec 550 watt power supply. ASUS A7N8X Deluxe Motherboard. Western Digital 7,200 RPM 40 gig IDE Hard Drive.(NTFS- file system) AMD Athlon XP 2600 processor.(standard fan and heatsink-Thoroughbred Core-standard speed-NO OVERCLOCK) 1 gig of Samsung DDRAM(PC 2700- 333 mhz....2-512mb sticks running in dual channel mode).Ati Radeon 8x 9600 XT (8x is enabled on motherboard). Soundblaster Audigy 2 sound card. Motorola sb 5100 cable modem (Insight Communications-Cable Connection) BenQ 16x DVD- RECORDER.(records -R/-RW or +R/+RW and CD-R formats) LG 52x32x52 CD Burner.

    sorry I don't tend to even notice peoples sigs, bit like banner ads LOL

    so you can upgrade your current set up to a barton core when the prices of the 3000+ come down that will give you a small performance boost.

    you may even get a 3200 in there if your board is rev2.

    Or just save up for a new board and an athlon64 for xmas

    It does but it hardly has anything to do with 64-bit capabilities. A lot of it has to do with its new on-die memory controller...the new processors are doing 4000mb/s with a single CPU and 4600mb/s in dual CPU configuration with slow DDR333 (FSB is 200 so ideally you would run DDR400 at least). I used to see overclocked Athlons at 2.5ghz struggling to reach 3500. In comparison my system did 4600 stock as well but an easy 6000-6500 with some new RAM. They are finally catching up to Intel in this respect.

    Those things go to 2.5ghz (233x11 is commonly seen) on air...crazy overclockers.

    that is exactly what i am saying just use it as a 32 bit chip and it will still outperform a current athlon at the same clock speed.

    Currently all benchmarks on windows have nothing to do with 64 bit never mind "hardly" :)

    I said "currently" and windows xp 64 bit edition will be out about first quarter 2004. This is not longhorn, that is the next version of windows due out later.

    Intel does indeed have something to worry about come next month- and this is in 32-bit code, not 64
