Get the X2, dual core is always better. If you can afford it, go for the FX, but get an FX-60 or FX-62, they are dual core. Still, what do you want to use your computer for? Are you going to be doing a lot of multitasking where a dual-core would pay off? Or are you just a casual web surfer/ emailer?

Well if you want a quick upgrade, just go for X2 3800+. It should hold you for a few years, as more and more programmers write programs that utilize the 2nd core. I'd personally just save up and get a new mobo, and a Intel Core 2 Duo processor. They're better than the FX line by AMD, and cost less too. Of course, its a big investment buying a new motherboard, and cpu, but it's worth it. You'll be glad you switched over!

I paid 112$ at the time to buy this pice and I think I will go for the Dual Core for a server and the 3500+ for my computer
