hmm whats the computer gonna be used for? If its for gaming the duel core stuff isn't really what you are looking for AMDs best processor for that is the fx series, and if you cant afford that I would still get the normal amd 64 w/ san diego core before I would ge tthe opteron with duel core. But if no gaming then yea its a good cpu for you. If you are gonna OC the thing the fans in the case are sufficient but you may want to look into a different heatsink / fan for the cpu

here are the best ones IMO

not saying the duel core can't game just not as good as a single core will all the power going to one app.. duel core is better for splitting apps and handleing that more efficiently
