Default Which processor

I'm choosing between the Opteron 180 and the Athlon 64 X2 4800+, I'm using the ASUS A8N-SLI Premium mobo (here)

Is the Opter 180 compatible, and which would be the better buy?

u already have a 4600+, getting a 4800+ is pointless, but if u love to waste money then go for the 4800+

You already have a dual core CPU. I would get an Opteron just for the hell of it. Try something new.

Yeah i don't get why you would consider an X2 4800 when you already have an X2 4600. Why not go all out with an FX-60? That'd be cool.

Opteron and yes. If you really feel the need to upgrade, I'd go with that Opteron or even a lower model, and then overclock it.
