AFAIK: Athlon X 3200 or Sempron 3200

AthlonXP 3200+ is mentioned here, which would be the fastest processor you
could find for it.

http://www.msi.com.tw/program/produc...il.php?UID=633

******* Three of the fastest AthlonXP processors *******
XP Model 10 2200 (3200+) OPGA 200 512 11x 1.65V 85oC 60.4W
Barton 2100 (3000+) OPGA 200 512 10.5x 1.65V 85oC 53.7W

XP Model 10 2167 (3000+) OPGA 166 512 13x 1.65V 85oC 58.4W
*******

The 3200+ runs at 2200MHz, which is a CPU clock of 200MHz x 11 multiplier.
The processor bus is double data rate, and is 200MHz x 2 = FSB400.
Typically, a chipset runs best if the RAM is in sync with the processor
bus, and with FSB400, that would be DDR400 RAM. DDR400 is provided
by a stick of PC3200 RAM.

There are some examples of 3200+ S462 AthlonXP processors here. The
prices are high, because the processor is no longer in production.
For those kinds of prices, you'd almost be better off looking for a
more recent processor family to work with.

For example, this board is $66 and takes S939 processor, DDR RAM,
and AGP video.

For $59 on top of that, you can get a Athlon64 3200+, which will
have better memory performance than your old AthlonXP motherboard.
This processor and the Asrock motherboard, would be cheaper than
one of those OEM 3200+ XP processors. And since there are also
faster S939 processors on the Newegg page, for a few bucks more,
you get more processor.

For example, a Athlon64 3800+ is $89.
