AMD3800+<br />
<br />
Go 3700+ if you have the option though.<br />
<br />
Neither are good upgrades though...

It has 1MB of L2 cache vs 512KB. <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
There is also the Opteron 144 route....1MB of L2 cache, and cheaper than a 3500... <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

No you didn't.<br><br>
The best S754 CPU is the 3700+, that I don't think that there is a 3800+ for S754. It would have helped if you would have specified in your title...

As expected.<br><br>
Emperor, get the 3700+. The 3800+ is crap compared to that. I don't even know why AMD gave it a higher number.

HAHAHA! the 3700 isnt as good. first, the 3800 has a higher multiplyer and was awarded best single core OC chip for 939by Maximum PC . plus 512l2 cache means less transistors. less transistors means less heat. pluss cant realy tell the difference between 1mb, and 512kb

</div>Dude whatever. if anything is obsolete its a 512Kb L2 cpu.

</div>So if you never used a chip, you don't know anything about it, right? So 90% of the users here offering help, should be waiting to help people with identical rigs, right?<br />
<br />
3700+'s are still made, btw. <br />
<br />
And the 3800+ is not better, just because "you" got it "to OC" to 3.1Ghz, completely unstable - while a good stepping usualy does 3Ghz 24/7, 3.2Ghz suicide.

I would trade in .2ghz for 512k of extra cache anyday. 3700+ > 3800+ And if CPU-z crashes, that means you are unstable. Better bump down that clock.

</div>Uh, thats for AM2, not S939. <br />
<br />
And they still make 1MB cache processors for AM2 (X2's), at that.

</div>Uh, no. On air cooling. Look at people with a 3700+ and a good stepping and ask for their OC's. <br />
<br />
Until insults get thrown, its a discussion. Whats wrong with that?

</div>Wait, so you got 3ghz on stock cooling?! Yea, I must see CPU-Z before I believe that.
