If you can afford it an opteron 165. It's about the same price as an x2 3800+ but have been overclocking very well.

recent 3800+ stepping have been OCing better than recent Opty 165s. many have been reaching 3Ghz on water and 2.8 on air.

dual cores are also great for gaming as many newer games are built to take advantage of more than one core.

also i saw no one answered your question, so .....it is pretty easy to install a cpu.
lol just go slow, read all instructions, and stay away from carpet and water.

True. Realy either the 165 or x2 3800+ will be good. If that's out of your price range a 146 is an awesome processor for the price. I bought mine from a member here and it can do 3ghz easy.

This explains what the stepping is(look at the picture of the processor at the bottom)

Good choice the x2 3800+ is a good processor.

With stock cooling I would think maybe 2.4-2.5 everday use. With a better heat sink and fan maybe 2.6-2.7. Although it could be better or worse. For a better heatsink I would suggest a thermaltake big typhoon.
