3700+ Sandy by far!
Edit: I would just get like a decent 512mb stick of RAM maybe some G.Skill if you are wanting to OC and then save up the rest and get like 3 more sticks all in Dual Channel

Of course the 3700 is faster. has the same FSB and a higher multi, and more L2 cache

well i play games, not really bothered about overclocking

Looking at toms hardware, the 3700 isnt all that much quicker than the 3200, in some games it's only like a few fps faster.
