What is the best processor for simple tasks?

I have Dell Dimension 1100 desktop computer that is seven years old. At some point I'll be replacing the base unit with a new one and am considering which one would best fit my requirements.
I will mainly be using the computer to send / receive emails, surf the web, use Word Office software and stream movies.
Dell sells a base unit (Inspiron 570MT). In this regard there are various versions, each with a different AMD processor (AMD Semperon, AMD X2, and AMD X3). Each sells at a different price.
In terms of my requirements, balancing cost and quality, which one of these would be the best buy?
Or should I go for an Inspiron 620MT base unit with an Intel Pentium processor? If so, which particular processor would be the best buy?
Finally, how many GBs of memory should I buy?
