They're not too shabby for OCing, but the 3700s overclock better. The San Diego core has shown itself to be probably the single best AMD core for overclocking. Based on the stats I've seen, the 3700 will reach a higher max speed than the 3800! I would personally go for a 3700 over a 3800.

Go with a 3700+ it has 1mb L2 cache vs the 3800+ has 512mb L2 cache.

It costs less and you can overclock it the same if not better, You cant overclock the L2 cache...

For $145, it's definately worth it. But just for reference, the 3700>3800.
