should i get the Opty 165 (1.8ghz) $160
Opty 170 (2Ghz) $203
X2 3800 (2ghz) ~$175ish
X2 4200 (2.2) $183
or X2 4400 (2.2) [1MB L2] $226

i was origanly thinking of getting the FX55 for only $220, but i need dual core.

X2s are cheaper, and prety good at ocing.
Optys are expensive but great at OCing, very stable, and what ive heard last longer because they are made to be for servers, so they must be reliable.
