No, 5.3 will be the stable release in the 5.x tree, 5.2 is still unstable IIRC. 4.9 is the only stable release right now, in my understanding.

What about freeBSD 4.9 AMD64? Does it exist? and where can i find it? Or can I trust the 5.X versions?
The only versions officially available for AMD64 are 5.1 and 5.2. You can still run the x86 versions (4.9 and up) on AMD64 just fine. This does not go the other way though (i.e Taking AMD64 binaries and trying to run it on Athlon XP 2000). The Athlon XP does not have the extra x86-64 instruction set. Since you have Athlon XP 2000, you have to stick with the i386 versions.
