yes get an opteron, but if you get an X2 go for a 4600 because it has an extra bit of L2 cache which is good for the stuff you do

If all I need to do is change the multiplier then thats sounds like a good deal.
you can use value ram and the stock cooler it comes with. You will just have to use a divider on the memory, which many people do, and overclock the processor.
Go with the opteron, the x2's dont overclock as good, and they are a waste of money IMO.

I agree with geting the opteron, even if you dont o/c it that far, there a better chip at the same speed than the x2. AMD makes them with better silicon because there ment for a server/workstation enviroment.

You must game as well, otherwise you would have sunk your teeth into a workstation-esque board.

If I were you, doing the things you do, I'd get an Opteron 175 from Monarch.

200x11, you can get 2.6 if you run 236x11 with a 9:10 divider (if your motherboard has this option). Most value ram will run ~212MHz at stock volts and timings.

disagree with x2 4600 it has the same L2 cache as the 3800+ 2x 512 as the 4400+ has 2x 1mb as well as the opteron 165,170,175 all have 2x1mb L2

Monarch is good I have done plenty with them my favorite as most though is still Newegg but if you want the best prices on the opteron CPUs go to mwave.com 175 is $15 cheaper than monarch as well as all there other CPUs are cheaper as well....as well mwave is a very good place to buy I have never had problems with them as well as the other 2 places...

Odd, mwave shows $505 as the price. Monarch is 496 and change shipped.
