if you are looking to overclock, get a athlonxp-m. they run at lower voltages, which means cooler temps, and more headroom. it isnt uncommon to have a xp2500-m running over 2400-2500 mhz, (about a 600-700mhz overclock) on good air cooling. newegg has the 2500's for about 95$ right now

depends on what you will use it for, how much you are looking at spending, things like that - a good place for info is http://www.anandtech.com - they have all kinds of reviews/benchmarks for just about everything

I'd actually say to get an old celeron system to play with at first. That's what I did at least. The older P3 era celies were great toys to tinker with. May be hard to find today, but I'm sure ebay has a few:p

Shuttel AN35N Ultra. XP2500 Barton on an 11X multiplier (because they are locked now), or a mobile XP2500. Done. This way you can just use your existing PATA IDE hard drivers. The shuttle overclocks very well.
