The XP 2400+ is faster. It has a lower FSB (133MHz vs. 166MHz), but its increased clock speed is more than enough to make up for that.

DEC Pentium X2 5200+ w/ HyperCache (Ezra core)
Asus M7NCD-MAX3 (OPTi Vendetta 82C760)
6x Generic 32MB PC2700 RDRAM (50ns SIMMs)
2x nVidia Millennium X1800 Duo (SLI mode)
12x (daisy-chained) Quantum Medalist 180GXP (w/ separate SCSI-1 adapter)

Faster in clock speed, they're not. The XP 3200+ is 2.2 GHz, the slowest 64's are 1.8 GHz.

In one' ">http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=33&type=expert article, the Athlon64 2800+ and Athlon XP 3200+ seem to compete quite well.

Since the Athlon XP's have shot way up in price recently, it would be better to get the 64 since it's cheaper.

Edit: Overall, it would be best to get the socket 939 Athlon64 3000+ with the Winchester core. Very good overclocker.
