The Socket 939 Opterons overclock the best. Just make sure you get anything but the CABGE, or popularly known as the "Cabbage".

The Opteron gives slightly added performance, so get it Make sure you get CABNE stepping though They'll be about the same in games. What motherboard are you planning on getting?

DFI LanParty UT nF4 Ultra-D.

Would I be better off with an X2 3800+ or an Opteron 165? The Opteron has twice the L2 cache, but half the FSB. I'm going to stick with air cooling and I don't want to go crazy with the voltage, so I probably won't overclock all that much.
