Me too. I just built an Athlon XP 2100 system and it's so inexpensive & very fast. Speed-wise it's very comparable to my 2GHz P4. I used a Shuttle AK31 mobo, which can handle a max of 3GB DDR memory so I installed 1GB first on this machine and it really rocks.

MP means Multi-Processor that's suitable for servers. However, you can find mobo's that support dual XP's and they're very expensive. A DDR Athlon XP with a decent video card is a perfect machine for gamers as of today.
