Default Amd 3700

What do you guys think of the AMD Atalon 3700+ procesor.
I am looking in to building a pc and this sounds like a decent processor.
If you have any comments, good or bad, please let me know.

Thanks

Do you mean the 939-pin one or the 754-pin one? The 939-pin is Great, but i would go with a Dual-core if you plan on doing things other then games, or plan on having the PC for a while...

AMD Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego 1GHz FSB 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 1GHz FSB 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket 939 Dual Core Processor

I was looking at the 754 pin, but what are the differences between the two in the case of quality and performance?

Yeah, the 939-pin pwns the 754-pin...

They may have a higher Clock speed, but get beat by the 939-pins higher cache also the 939-pin chips will be in production till 2009, were as the 754-pin are being phased out.

I have the 939 pin one and its great. I have overclocked mine to the speeds of an FX-55. I would say if you dont have the cash for a dual core then get that one. Although I wouldnt get the socket 754 one because that is like the best processor you can get for socket 754 so you willnt have any room to upgrade.

the major difference are the support for dual channel DDR in 939 and the hyper transport link upgrade from 1600MHz to 2000MHz.

so you should be looking at 939 as a much faster and capable system with the right pieces of hardware put together.

Socket 754 users are generally for people who are on a budget while Socket 939 is for more serious computer users who demands more out of the performance of their machine. If you're going to be gaming, get Socket 939.

I even think the sockeet 939 is mainstream and is becoming very very affordable. Socket 939 mobos in sli used to be 250 dollars, now they are 100. Thats crazy.
