Default Shopping for nwe AMD CPU

Hi fellas I was shopping for a new AMD CPU. I currently have 64 3500 which is like 2 years old. I see there is the opteron, X2, and FX. I am lost. Which one should I get for the best, long lasting bang for the buck?

1) the 3500 is still really good.

2) Get an intel core 2 duo.

Core 2 Duo e4500 2.2ghz @ 2.8ghz
evga 650i ultra
2gb 400mhz ram OC'ed to 450
evga geforce 7600GT overclocked

John that was stupid.

I'm assuming he is going dual core like me... Well if you have the money. GO BUY A CORE 2 DUO and mobo. But if you don't one of the X2 series is more than enough. Look at my thread on this page for more info. Also wait for others to put in their 2 cents...
i5 750@3.8GHz [24/7] \\ 4GB G.Skill Ripjaws \\ 640GB WD Black + External Storage \\ HD5770 \\ Win7 x64 \\all housed in a neat little P180 mini.
