If you are not going to overclock ever, get the 4000+.
Otherwise, the 3700+ does much better.

I would go for the 4000+.It does have a larger cach size.If your not that pressed on the price that is the way to go.The 3700 is still a very good processor dont get me wrong and it will oc well.Thats just my 2 cents.

The SD 3700+ and 4000+ have a 1024 KB cache, the rare and SD 3500+ only has a 512 cache
Your best bet is a 3700+ and will OC well past the 4000+ easily.

Should I go with San Diego or Clawhammer...I don't really know the difference except it looks like San Diego runs at a lower voltage.

You wanna go with San Diego, it's 90 nM, as opposed to 130 nM production, so produces less heat, and it has a better memory controller. Clawhammer is the old stuff. I agree completely with Sun when he says if you're NEVER going to overclock, go with the 4000+. I have a San Diego 4000+, and if I had known what I do now, I would have gone with the 3700+ and gotten some different RAM. Seeing as how you're here asking questions, I would suggest the 3700+, as even if you don't think so, the overclock bug will bite you at some point.

The Clawhammer is Skt 754, whereas the san Diego is Skt 939. The Clawhammer is also 130nm chip as opposed to the 90nm of the San Diego, which makes the San Diego slightly faster, and with more choice of new motherboards.

Not for nothing, but they do make 939 Clawhammers :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103497, but you still don't want one.

If you notice that on Newegg, the Clawhammer is ~$10 MORE right now, get a San Diego, no matter whether you go for the 3700+ or 4000+

But besides what's already up here, the Clawhammers don't support SSE3 instructions either. Don't ask me what that means, I don't know.

I would say the 3700+ is the better buy.

Get the 3700. I am extremely happy with mine. The 4000 in my opinion, is not worth the extra money. A 3700 will perform almost as well at stock speeds, and besides the OC bug might get you. So for the price of a 3700, you can do a tiny overclock and have a chip thats just as fast as a 4000 for less money.
