    Am i right in thinking it will be the 3700 San Diego? (partly due to overclockability)

    There's a 146 on the MM here at the mo for £160. (i have no affiliation with the seller in any way..yada yada yada :D

    They seem to crop up quite often just now and if you dont mind paying more than the true retail price, but less than the £200 you specify then they are worth the cash.

    To be honest I would fork out the extra £20 for a Dual Core. It will offer a multitude of oppertunity for future applications over a single core (A64 or Opteron UP). One reason why I sold my Opteron, shame though, as 3.0Ghz is pretty darn quick as the new buyer will be finding out tomorrow when it arrives :).

    The difference is bigger than £20, isn't it, a SD 3700+ is £159.74 and a X2 3800+ is £211.44 :confused:
