Default Re: Athelon64 3700+ or Athelon 64 3800+ Dual Core?

intel *hisses* lol, slow ram can be quite a big draw back on ur comp, i know everyones goin on about multitasking with the dual cores but seriously i can have 15 windows open and still run fine so single cores are best for now so if u get a 3500+ or the 3700+ with 2 gigs of pc3200 ram then that comp will be really really nice

I'm a gamer. Multitasking is somethign I never do, with the exception of one FF browser open and Trillian running. I never play music or anythgin liek that. It's usually 2 application running at one time, so a Dual-Core for multitasking isn't for me. However, maybe a dual-core for gaming is better?

I've also thougth about getting that Opteron 144 Venus, it's cheaper, and you can overclock the living heck out of it. And well, I'm an overclocker, so i liek knowing that!

Any other inputs would be great;y appreciated.
