go with the AXP 2000+....it will kill the P4 1.6A at stocks speeds...not only that...the P4 motherboard only has ddr266 ram (on that cpu/motherboard combo)...which only decreases the P4's performance...
i would just get the AXP if i were you...

Get a good videocard then. Do you know both Quake3 and Max Payne run perfectly well on a 1 Ghz P3/athlon ? Hell, even my brothers old P3-600 runs both games *very* adequately when coupled with a simple Geforce2 Pro. Unless you can distinguish 100 fps from 250 (which you cant, cause your monitor cant handle it anyway)..
>and also for playing DVDs
That sure doesnt require a killer machine. A P2-300 would do I think. My friend even uses his Celeron 500 laptop for playing DivX movies. Works like a charm.
