either of those aren't a speed upgrade, you're just adding another core

Yeah Iknow. Which 1 would you perfer though?. If I wanted to stick with a single core what would be a good upgrade from a 3700. I have about 500 bux to spend.

If you want a DC either the 175 or the X2 4200+ "ADA4400DAA6CD" with the same cache as the 175 which both utilze an 11x should OC simularly.
If you do go X2 check the below chart and note the CACHE differences!!!

It should, yes the word is should.
There not offically supported by MB makers and it's always good update the BIOS before installing it ... seeing you have a 3700+ no big deal.

Id get an Opty 170. It clocks at 2.0ghz but easily OC to 2.6ghz with stock. It OCs just as much as the 175 but only cost $397 at new egg.

The big diff is does the 170 have an 11x multiplier? If not you'd require a hell of a lot more mhz in ram to run 1:1 ratio, which is the main reason to spend more money on the proc. and skimp a bit on memory.
