I have a 3800+ X2 and have had it for about a year and a half now and I can vouch that this is a very good processor for the price, the pentium Ds really aren't anything in comparison, definitely go with AMD in this scenario.

Yep, same here. I've had mine since January '06 and it's awesome. Handles Photoshop, CAD, and pretty much all current games like a champ.

I've got a 3500+ myself and want to upgrade to a dual core, but then I'll have to upgrade my motherboard also and I feel edgy about taking my whole computer apart and putting new bits in and don't want to pay 30 to a shop if they do it for me :\
