Thread Starter 
Hi guys
Just a quick Q.
Which processor would be better for gaming.
Dual Core 3800 or single 4000?

Right now the 4000+ would be slightly better, but the 3800+ will become better in time as games are coded to support dual core. I would get the 3800+ as it is overall a better CPU, and it will become better with new games.

Welcome to the forums, BTW!

If you going to go for a single core skt939, there is no point in buying anything but an Opteron right now.

With the AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 Dual-Core processor, your PC will perform up to 80% faster than a single-core AMD Athlon™ 64 4000+ processor on the latest power-hungry digital media software applications.

WOT MORE CAN I SAY LOL

I would go for the Opterton, also. If you buy soon, many of them have the CAYBE stepping which is very good for overclocking. They are also very powerfull processors designed for server use, which also means they are extremely stable.

Forget those 2 choices and try to get an opty 148 or 146. Both will crush the 4000+ and save you some serious cash if you plan on overclocking.
Forget going dual core for now because most games aren't optimized for dual core, so it would be a waste...hope this helps..

You're basing the "crush" claim on what exactly? lol
