Default 3800 Dual Or 4000 Single?

Just want everyones input on this, I think it obviously depends on how you use your system or what you use it for, but I think the 3800 is a better choice right now:

X2 3800:

4000 San Diego:

Go with the dual....... Soon, games will have SMP support, so try to make your computer futureproof.

BE READY FOR WHEN THE FUTURE KNOCKS!


Edit: Also you can use your dualie for some programs that already support SMP....... RaD!

I easily overclocked my X2 3800+ to 2.4 Ghz with stock cooling. Systems runs at 28C idle / 45C load.

I can't wait to get my dual 3800+ and all brand new parts! Oh baby its gonna rock! And to go along with 2 massive 19" flat panels! Multitasking and multiple screens with a dvd burn in progress will be a cinch. By Friday I will have a cool sig like you guys!
