$150-$200 Dual Core

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am selling my FX-55 bc I hit the wall at 3Ghz so im moving on to my next project. Does anyone have any suggestions on a dual core thats around $150-$200 that usually overclocks well. I'm open to trying opterons but i don't know if its compatible with my mobo and I have no experience with them.

Opty 165 and X2 3800+. Both overclock nicely, but I'd suggest the Opteron.

My x2 3800 suprised me.. 960 mhz OC.. and thats limited by my board..

Hmmm, go for opteron for its 1x2mb cache or if you go with x2 go with 4400, but on the other hand, it won't overclock so great. I'd buy some ddr2 and a new mobo and get a e6300 if I was you.

All of the new AMD and Intel chips are multi unlocked downwards, perfect for upping the fsb.
