I was wondering what is the fastest and low cpu consuming mp3 player that has a gui based? I'm using Amarok on my OpenSuSE. And it seems when i check the cpu utilization it uses 40-50% and sometimes 60% of my CPU without running anything.
For this one is not acceptable. Anyone would like to recommend a better one? with GUI
Distribution: Fedora (workstations), CentOS (servers), Arch, Mint, Ubuntu, and a few more.

XMMS2 is a total different thing. It's based on the Client-Server model where you have a two different programs running, in fact the server need not to be on the same computer. Anyway, I don't think this is not what you are looking for.
Yeah,.. as sica07 said, Audacious seems to be the mutual successor to XMMS. It supports XMMS skins too.
Note: CPU and Memory usage is highly machine specific. So can't tell exact percentage. Anyway,. MPlayer is a great (IMHO the greatest ) player for Video playback.
And it's playback is less skippy, compared to almost always with the other programs (Rhythmbox, Smplayer, etc) -- when I'm trying to play music and do other stuff at the same time.) (and I have tried several other programs before it).
(I did have to separately search for and install the file audacious-plugins-freeworld-mp3-3.0.2-2.fc16.i686.rpm before mp3 playback would work in Audacious, but oh well, that's not that annoying.)
