Default new processor question.

Ok im close to being done with my new computer but im thinking of either getting a 3000+ or a 3200+ each would be venice. I know how to overclock really well so i was wondering if the 3000+ is really just a underclocked 3200+ and if i should just go with that and overclock it? It would save me like 50 bucks but im not sure if its a good idea.

I would go for the 3200+ it is a more stable processor when overclocking and NO it is not just a 3000+ overclocked like the 3400+ and the 3500+ there are similar but are not the same at all. But then again do what you can with your budget.

Every chip is different so its impossibel to predict so just disregard every comment ^^^. Getting the 3200+ probably will enable you to oc higher and it'll be stable.

lol yea every chip is differant but most 3000+ will get 3800 without to much trouble especially if you make sure u get a week 17 (check the stepping)

the reason that most are the same is beacause amd has a very high yeild of good chips so most 3000 are only 3000 cos they can't sell that many 3800. but yes they do lock the multi lower in the slower chips but you can just raise the fsb
