Depends entirely on the application you are running. Most current applications are not written yet to fully utilize a dual core cpu, games like BF2 and such are single core games. However, something like Oblivion would be a different story, as it was written to utilize more than one core. So, for gaming, in most cases, the 3.0+ would edge the 2.6. For normal multi-tasking I would give a very small edge to the opteron. However, if you can get that cpu running 3.0+... I mean, thats one hell of a fast CPU, dual core or not!

Well I guess I can see what kind of preformance I can get out of the FX-55 when my comp gets here and then consider upgrading. I think I will need the dual core soon, because I do a lot of multi-tasking sometimes, more then gaming.

Either way, anything will be faster then my good old OCed P4 Prescott at 3.53Ghz.

EDIT: Well that is what I am thinking, hopefully I am right.....+rep for the help guys Thanks!

The Golden Stepping is on Ebay, and not ridiculously overpriced! (yet)
