  1. Hello, I wanna know if its really a good choice tu upgrade from an 148 to a x2 3800+. Im not shure about the single trheads aplication, would I realize the difference of the 512kb extra of the opteron...

    and in dayly task would I see the difference?
    and in general performance?
    and in games?

    Get an opteron 165, and overclock it :D, they are great overclockers, and equal X2 3800+ at stock speeds, but OC way better.

    I'll second the 165, I like mine. Keep in mind you only hear reports of the "good overclocks," so it makes it seem like everyone's getting their 165 to 3ghz(even if most aren't).

    Just a note the 939 opterons are "going on sale" on oct 30 'till years end.

    I might need to get a second one at those prices.

    Ahahap, thats right, in Newegg the opterons are at 160dollars, but out of stock...in others resselrs the price is over 240dollars.

    so you say that I shall wait till November to see the new prices? But is there going to come new stock? And if the opterons where discontinued.....how would there be new stock?

    but i dont understant what does 10/30/06 price and sale price? :S

    Wait if you think the savings are worth it. $160 is still a good price(I paid almost 2x as much a few months ago).

    I can't make sense of your last line in your post.
