I still believe the 3700 is the curent best single core to OC for the cost factor.
Go with the best single GPU you can afford for now, you can always ad asecond one later if you so desire.

Man..why are you so set on an FX? You DO NOT need one!

The 170 will more than do what you need. It'll overclock to be an fx-60, and you'll save tonnes of money.....

Don't make so many threads about this.

fx57 and fx60 is about double the opteron 170's price. the 170 is cost effective and an oc will be more than worth it

yea.. opty 170 is cost effective but the 3700 sd is OCable to the fx-60 speeds out of the box ON AIR!

Save the money, grab a x1900 or a friggin 7900GTX.. def go hardcore graphics if you're making a gaming machine, don't set your mind right on FX. Look at stats and alternatives. The Opterons are a good cost effective product to the FX, but like The Duke said, 3700 SD is best for the moneyerformance.

Make a wise choice.

If you have cash flowing out of your ass, then do whatever you want.

If you want a strong stock CPU then the AMD64 4000 is the way to go. Don't get the FX53 or FX55 if you must get an FX series.

The FX53 was renamed to the AMD64 4000. The FX53 still goes for about $600, and the AMD64 4000 goes for around $330. The only difference is the name.

The FX55 and FX57 go for the same price nowadays, so if you were to choose between the two get the FX57 for sure.

If it were up to me I would get a AMD64 3700 or AMD64 X2 4400
