Default a64: 3000/3200 ?

which is better for the money? im going to eventually buy a replacement, but for the money, which has better performance? obviously the 3200+ is faster, but is the performance gain worth the extra $30?

also, which oc's better?


edit--
forgot the links. oops, and i forgot to mention that this is am2 that im talking about.

anyway,
a64 3000+
a64 3200+

It's only $30 more. To me, I would pay the difference to get the 3200+, but only if you can afford it. Otherwise, no.

Well, if I know I'll be replacing it, I'll just get whatever's cheaper. Both of those CPU's are exactly the same with one being higher clocked. You can OC the 3000+ plus anyways if you want to.

Those CPU's perform the same way anyways. No big deal there. I'm still stuck on the ancient Newcastle Core. Can you believe that? But it's still ticking until my next upgrade.
