    I am going to get a dual 3800+ for a new desktop/graphics system not a gamer.
    Before I give my shillings away just want to check this with you guys as i seem to oc everything i get my hands on at some point.

    Given that the Opty 164 upwards are dual core and i may oc but not maddly which opty would you get if given a choice against the dual 3800+

    Opty 165 but there is little to choose between that and the 3800+. Its the CPU stepping that counts tbh.

    I would go with the opty.More chance of a better overclock.More strigently tested and require less volts.
