Upgrade: Opteron or Conroe - Page 3

post #21 of 22
I vote for the 165 Opty and 2x1gb of DDR even some of the value brands can handle a little OC. You'll save some money and you will probably want to wait for the quad cores and DDR3, plus its always good to give new tech time to mature. Nothing wrong with Conroes but s939 still has a bit of life and DDR2 has some latency issues. If I was upgrading from something slower than 939 I would definately go conroe but DCs on 939 are still good performance wise and with your current hardware it makes sense money wise.
