Default Athlon 64

i was planning on buying an athlon 64 3500 on newegg and now i see there is three different cores. clawhammer, winchester, and newcastle. now i cant decide which one to get. what is the difference between these cores and which is the best. i dont plan on overclocking until my computer is out of date which will be in like 2 or three years so ocing isnt important to me.

Thanks in advance

don't know very much about the difference, but if oc'ing isnt important, get whichever works with your MB

If your not into OCing, supposedly clawhammer would be the best bet.

If you pay close attention you will notice the cache difference.

The ClawHammer has 1 meg of cache while the NewCastle only has 512 kb.

I would go with ClawHammer, it has been around longer and is apparently faster then the NewCastle.
