So you've overclocked your 3200+ to 2.6? Well, an FX60 is dual core, and has unlocked multiplier. It's the fastest CPU AMD makes.

Clock speeds are the same. FX60 dual core. However, in most current applications it does not matter that much, since there are's many programs (games) that support dual core.

Most importantly though, the FX 60 has double the cache (L1 and L2) on each core than the 3200+ has in total. This is a significant difference (even if the FX60 would have been single core with double the cache).

Finally.. difference = $850

Your 3200+ is no FX60, but it will serve you well in this rig. The true power of the FX60 will only be utilized in a heavyweight SLI or crossfire system, and only then when throwing anything you can get at it.

Your 3200+ has a single cored processor with a 512KB Cache and the FX-60 has dual cored processors with two 1MB Caches.

When used in SMP (Symetrical Multi-Processing) and on multiple threaded events the FX-60 will prove to be quite a bit faster. When task switching and gaming there will not be a great difference between the two although there will be a "Snappiness" moving between programs with the FX-60 in which the A64 3200+ can not compete.

For overclocking, the FX-60 has an unlocked multiplier and this adds another variable in the ability to extract the most performance.

That all being said, in almost all games and software that is single processor programmed there will not be a great difference between your 3200+ @ 2.6 and an FX-60 @ stock. Yes a difference but not marked.

Edit: @ Chozart - I'm going to start posting placeholders here when I see you around. ROFL
