My Mobo crapped the bed, and I was going to replace it but since I hate replacing and would much rather upgrade (from a celeron D 2.93ghz) I was thinking about going AMD Athalon 64 3000+ then overclocking it just a tad. But for $5 more I found this deal on an AMD Opteron 3000+: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103397R Now I know its refurbished, but if it lasts me a year, it would be worth it because I plan on building a new rig within a year anyway. I know Opteron is mostly used for Servers, but would it be better then the Athalon gaming wise? I mean the only difference I see between the two is Athalon has 512kb cache, and the Opteron has 1mb. But maybe im not seeing something. Input?
