um, so wat would u concider more cost-efficient:
amd64 3200+ OC'd or
amd64 3500+ stock/OC'd a lil bit
i would mainly use it for browsing, and little stuff. but also for playing some low-profile games(i think they are). like "the sims2" adn "rollercoastertycoon3" and "civilization4". but i might be playing some "bigger games" like "COD2" or "Quake4". i dunno. but ur input would be nice. thanks much.
It depends on what settings he's running at... but yeah, it's a big difference. A 3500+ is the better choice in my opinion. A 3200+ if you don't have the funds. Be careful! As i stated earlier, make sure you have adequate cooling: a good air fan or liquid cooling. phase change if you have the funds.
