Best socket 939 gaming CPU upgrade??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at one of these two for a CPU upgrade, but open to other suggestions.
Athlon 64X2 4800+ - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103544
or the Opteron 180 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103582
Both of these are exactly the same price - $299.99

What do you guys think?

thanks

Go with the Opteron. The X2s don't seem to be clocking as well as the other dual core Opterons.

For the same price the opty seems the better buy.

I'd go with the opteron myself. Should be able to overclock better due to tougher construction then the X2.
