btw, each core does not run at 2GHz, both cores work together to get 2GHz but still dual-core is better than single cores. I've heard the X2 3800+ is equivalent to a 3.8GHz P4. Either the Opteron 165 or the X2 3800+ are good choices
they dont work together to make 2ghz each core runs at 2ghz but dont the 3800+ run at 1.8ghz a core or am i mistaken

It's per core, not a combined speed.

And yeah, the 3800+ runs at 2GHz.

yes the 3800 is at 2.0ghz. but don't think that that's slow because that's about 3.8 intel ghz.

Intel's GHz is very skewed compared to AMD's. It's an emerging trend to focus on better performance to GHz ratio. The AMD X2 3800+ (2 GHz) would be better than my D820 for example that runs at 2.8 GHz.

yeah they basicallly do that for marketing because people think higher number=faster speeds.
