i currently have a sandy 3700 clocked at 2.9. I am wanting to upgrade my cpu but don't want to take a hit in my gameplay fps. basicly i'm looking for a duel core socket 939 that has 1mb L2 cache that can overclock to at least 2.9 so i am just adding another core instead of exchanging one fast one for 2 slightly slower ones when run in a single core app.<br />
any sugestions?

The X2 4200+ has the same 2.2GHz clock speed as the 3700+. Anything higher than that would be faster than the 3700+. The X2 4400+ Toledo features 1MB L2 cache per core.<br />
<br />
Check it out. <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_64_microprocessors#Dual-Core_Desktop_Processors" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...top_Processors</a><br />
The Manchester and Toledo cores are socket 939.

I thought all dual core S939 CPU's topped out at 2.8-2.9GHz?

Now I'm feeling not-so-fresh because I just bought a 3700+ a couple weeks ago and you guys are already leaving me behind!<br />
<br />
I can't really provide any real-world information about how high the X2s can overclock, but you might try getting a dual core Opteron because in general, they're supposed to OC higher than their A64 counterparts<br />
<br />
Further reading: <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_opterons#Opteron_100-series_.22Denmark.22_.2890_nm.29" target="_blank">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...22_.2890_nm.29</a><br />
Only the "Denmark" is socket 939 dual core.
