Question Good ol' AthlonXP, but which one?

greetings my fellow mayans
ive been trying to decide on a processor for my new computer, the new computer will be running maya, combustion, quite a few games, and photoshop
which processor is best for the job? (disregarding money cos i can make sacrifices elsewhere)
oh, and please, no1 suggest a dual cos i cant afford that :p

XP2800+ (thoroughbred core)
XP2800+ (barton core)
XP3000+ (barton core)

i heard the 3000 gets really hot? and the bartons are supposedly underperforming? dunno, just wanted your views on this

thanks

the bartons are good.. just make sure you get a hell of a big cooling system.. a couple of fans and good ventilation.. go get a 3000+ dude,,


as always,
your hardware helper ,

which reviews? id like to see them, ive seen the ones on tomshardware

and i always thought rendering and that is about cpu speed, if so the thoroughbreds have the advantage cos the increased L2 cache only stores info, doesnt speed it up directly whic i think ppl are getting hyped up about?

whats so great about the bartons?
