    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/products/mainboard/mbd/pro_mbd_detail.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.

    http://www.pricewatch.com/cpu/athlon_xp_3200.htm

    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.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103535

    For example, a Athlon64 3800+ is $89.
