The 'athlon64 3400' has no performnce increse over the normal athlons as they don't TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE 64 EXTENSIONS.

My 400mhz computer takes about 7 hours to crunch a short WU and only get about 5 - 8 of credit compared to my BEAST 3Ghz which gets 8 - 12 of credit where it only takes a hours to complete. The 400 uses linux while the beast uses winxp pro.

I have a 400 running on LHC as well as 2GHZ, and i don't care when i get credit granted as it will some day. Also every MHZ counts.
