    Hi people. I'm thinking of jumping to a dual core system now that prices have dropped a bit but was wondering what kind of price i could get for my Opty 146 i have running at the moment. Anyone got any ideas? it can hit 3Ghz with some decent cooling, just wondering if its worth selling or keeping hold of. thanks!

    £50-60 at a guess at most I would say

    I may be in the minority but even though yours can hit 3Ghz on air, its worth less in my opinion than a 3800 X2 (naturally clocked to 2.0 but most can usually reach 2.5GHZ + with decent air cooling) and these are sub £100 brand new
