if oyur looking for cache size... get an opteron =] .. the 3800+ x2 has way more over head room and can be over clocked to higher speed then a 4800 x2 =] ( i got mine to 2.85 ghz stable and i didn't have to stop there.. i just got lazy) i have overclocked both and ran in to many problems with my friends 4400 on the same mobo that i used to oc mine. same ram and my gfx card =]
if you want my opinion get an opteron 170 if you wanna spend that much its got the cache and is cooler, or get the 3800 x2 and save a little cash and just overclock your brains out nd have a better preforming comp then all your friends =] -trey
oh an i was at 2.85 on air also =] ... thing is with my big typhoon only for to 48c's on FULL load =] ( had to RMA becaus my power supply weent out at a lan and shorted out my cpu. when i get my computer back ill give oyu my screen shots of cpu-z 3dmark scores and stuff like that if you want some proof of my 3800 easly out preforming a oc'd 4400 -trey
( okay maybe not easy (took probably a full day to oc both of them) but it did it)
