    I am thinking about building an AMD 64 Athlon system (probably a 3000+). I would appreciate any info you might have to give on what to look out for. For example, are all Athlon 64 3000+ processors created equally or are there slight, but important variations? I built my own systems in the past but have not kept up with all the changes lately.

    thanks

    Not many programs take advantage of the 64Bit architecture. Probably less than a total of 3 programs.

    My suggestion is go to www.Tomshardware.com and look at the 64bit Motherboards and Processors.
