Opterons are better since they get their processor from the center of the wafer. This allows for an higher OC since they have little/no defects in their silicon, running much cooler, more reliably and more stable at higher OCs which is why we love them. Athlon X2s are usually the Opty "rejects" being perfectly good processors but having small defects which do not allow for such high OCs. Also, Opterons are meant to be run in a server enviorment, requiring the utmost of reliability, so the perfection of these chips is quite important, increasing our OCs!

yes it can. And the reason I have an X2 at the moment is because when I bought it, I wasn't on OCN! I actually have an Opty 165 coming to my doorstep very soon. And also, the diff between FX and an Opty 180-185 is negligable. They are pretty much the same thing I think.
