Ok, i'm in a quandry...

I have £200 insurance money to spend on either a replacement AMD 64 4000+ San Diego (for the one I brutally murdered)....

OR

Do I get an AMD 64 x2 4400+?

I shall be mostly using it for gaming..

What do you reckon people??

For single-threaded gaming performance, the X2 4400+ is going to give you about the same performance as a 4000+... Infact, the 4000+ may actually have just the ever-so-slightest edge.

Even so, I'd probably go with the X2. Since it is '400+' faster, the MHz difference makes up for its gaming short comings and puts it on par with the lesser 4000+ single core... But you get all the creamy benefits of dual threading elsewhere. :)

There's some games (and more coming I bet!) that do support multi-threading. A list is here: http://forumz.tomshardware.com/games/Dual-Core-supported-games-ftopict94969.html
