Well you can do dual cpu with the opteron and isn't it supposed to be better at server hosting or something?

It's socket 940, I think 2.4ghz and 2000fsb like all the other amd64's (using hyper transport of course). That's just what I think though.

socket 940 is what the fx uses, so that would make the opeterons out preform the ......the other 64's (other than fx) but the fx cant be used in a dual or quad config, so i.......i wonder what prices are cuz i was thinking of making a 3400+ 64 but if an opeteron is better mabye i ll get one

The FX-51 and 53 used the socket 940, but it required more expensive registered memory. So AMD went with the socket 939 (The later versions of the FX-53 used socket 939). Opterons are for servers and workstations. Server and workstations are always more expensive than desktop ones. The opteron series also requires registered memory, thanks to the socket 940.
