do you need a washcloth for all that sarcasm dripping from your voice?

Oh, ok... that one looks like it is basically the Opteron equivalent to the FX-60 but even better.... nice...

So the 180 would be the runner up it looks like?

What would it be equivalent to, just to give me a comparison?

I may not be an AMD guy, but I knw Opterons are able to overclock a lot and stay cool. BUT I would get a dual core CPU, since programs ar starting to get coded for dual core CPUs and a dual core CPU will last you longer

dude if you can get 2 brand new opty 180's for 600 then do it. newegg sells them retail for like 800 a piece!

But if I had to guess... I'd say whoever it is, is blowing steam up your ____


for your price range I'd say the 175 is probably your best bet.

dual core 2.2Ghz. it's basically 2 of my cpu's put together. (to help you... a single core amd at 2.2Ghz is roughly equal to a 3.7Ghz Intel)

one thing to keep in mind when looking at AMD's... look at the cache size. some of them have 512mb cache per core while others have 1mb. the extra cache is roughly equal to 150-200Mhz increase in core frequency. so a 2.2Ghz cpu w/ 1mb cache would perform about the same as a 2.4ghz w/ 512mb

A good thing is that all opterons have the larget 1mb cache so you don't have to worry if you're looking at optys!
