Huh? 5 ghz on an AMD? Anyways, those are all good cpu choices, but there's no reason to put the 4000 over the 3700. It's not going to improve your overclock,so why spend the extra money? Comes down to whether or not you want to spend a lot on socket 939 or if you want to go light on socket 939 and save your cash for Socket M. Can't go wrong either way,really.

I'm talking intel equivalent...so it'd OC to 5000+ level, or 3.3 ghz actual clock cycle. Then again, games now-a-days use more graphics than processor. So a high OC level won't get you much in games right now, but it will get you better future performace and great start up times
