xp,no contest,is the better chip.if you got a bigger duron you probably wont see much differance,also i would say the 2500+ is the best chip out there (apart from the amd 64)slightly dearer than a xp 2400,but worth the extra for the larger cache,and faster fsb speeds.but i guess you should go for the max your motherboard can support,do your homework,google etc for reviews and comparisons.you are in the right place to start.
