Which amd cpu is better?
Amd athlon 64 or the amd opteron?

That would be a socket 939 and for gaming.
I just want to know for future reference.

Opterons have a reputation for overclocking high, but I'm not sure about gaming, probably the same as an Athlon 64. I could be wrong.

Most likely the Opteron, but it depends what type. You may have to be a tad more specific for any totally concrete answers. :).

The amd athlon 64 3500+ or this - AMD Opteron 170 Denmark 2.0GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939 Dual Core Processor - Retail

Definitely the's a dual core, and can overclock high.

opt for the opteron... lol i love saying that, but i didn't say that b/c its a good pun its a good overclocker plus its dual-core compared to that 3500+, and don't u have enough 3500+ processor based systems

I have been thinking about selling the first two in my sig or upgrading them.

If i upgrade there all going to be the same as the 3rd in my sig or better.

I am still unsure what i want to do though.

After i get this one job next year dealing with fixing and building computers i might sell them. I fix peoples computers right now and charge whatever i want.
The max i ever charged was $60.00. I am very experienced and all that.

My friends told me about this 1 company and told me to work there so i went online and asked them a few simple ?'s that they couldn't answer.

Like how to change the desktop backround if the buttons are greyed out without reformatting the computer. Its very simple.
Oh and how to speed up windows xp home edition sp2 which is also simple.

Um, Most of the newer opterons aren't great overclockers. You'd need to get a very early stepping to have any chance at a great overclocker... And good luck trying to find one...
