Default FX or X2?

i've heard alot of stuff about both the fx-57, and the x2 series.

for the x2, i've heard that they bottleneck 7800gtx's, for the fx-57, i've heard that its just a smaller processor with boosted up speed.

can anyone tell me the differences between these processors,(other than the x2 being dual core)

also, can you tell me which processor(fx-57,x2-3800+,x2-4400+,ect.) would be best for gaming,making games, and multitasking the previous items.

also, whats the difference between the dual core and single?

i would greatly appreciate help

I have a FX-55 OC'ed to 2.8GhZ; it's practically the same exact thing.

The FX-57 is definetely the best for gaming. For making games, I really wouldn't know. I think Intel might be better at the actual creation process, but like I said, I don't know. Multitasking goes to the X2 4800+ by far; two cores are better than one when it comes to handling more than one application.

Dual core is basically having two processors in one chip.

CPU's get bottlenecked by the Video cards btw. Any CPU unless its a 3.7GHZ FX57 will get bottlenecked by a high end video card.
