3200+ vs. opty 144

1342 23
I'm upgrading my computer, but I'm not sure weather to choose the opty or the 3200+. The opty is only at 1.8 and 3200+ is at 2.0, but how do their OCs differ? I don't have very good cooling but hopefully add a zalman 7000 eventually, if my case isn't too small. In other words, I'm not expecting a very high OC. So which one would be better?

I disagree with Ste, I would get the 144 either way...if you plan on leaving it stock, still get the 144. The 144 will perform the same as the 3200 stock vs stock. But if you decide to overclock, then the 144 will definetly blow the 3200 out of the water, and produce much better performance.

either way its a good general rule to view the extra cache as an additional 150-200 mhz. At least this is how it played when I tested the differences. The 144 is the better option hands down, stock or overclocked.
