Re: Follow Up Advice on my Frist Build
I've heard and read on several places the Conroe is better, I guess its preference on what you want to get. I can only tell you that I'm very pleased with my 3800 X2 runs very cool easy to OC (after you get yoru damn bios updated).
I'm pretty sure with it OC'd at 2.6GHz its equaly to or maybe even more powerful than the chip you were looking at above, not sure though.
Also make sure if you get the 3800X2 you get the AM2 version not the 939.
