how is an X2 better for gaming??? can you explain that ? so your saying that an opteron at (X) clock speed is not as good running games as an X2 at (X) clock speed?

also the 3800 and the 4200 x2 he is looking at both have less L2 cache then the opt 170 at almost the same or close price point,,, you say the difference is small in gaming but how is it better at gaming where are you getting this?
