  1. I am planning to buy a new mothorboard and CPU. One of the most important things is
    that the new CPU need only less power and hence produces less heat.

    Which of the three CPUs:

    - AMD Athlon XP Barton Mobile
    - AMD x64
    - Intel Core Duo

    is recommended when looking onto this criteria ?

    How much speed difference is netween the two (when the effective Ghz value is the same)?
