But what is wrong with an overclocked 3000+ for gaming, the cpu at the end of the day doesnt make a hell of a lot of difference in gaming, you get ya grunt from the gpu. Ya better off just spending more money on something else than a new cpu. (In my opinion of course) But if you are keen then have a look at a x2 4400 or even some of the optys. Buying these higher priced cpus like the 4400 will not give you a massive overclock compared to your 3000+. You will be paying for the cache and is it really worth it at the moment..........think about it.
