oh, and whats the diff between X2 and FX/////// Athlon and Opteron
Well, I mean it is a perfect rig already for all the new games but I mean if you wanted a 10/10 you could get a 7800gt, a raptor hard drive, and a DFI lanparty board, but it wouldn't be necessary. I say stick with the way it si now. It is perfect. The extra money wouldn't be worth ti for the performance. Most of the stuff you chose gave you more bang for the buck and that is a plus.
As for your second question................... X2 is a dual core processor. The X2 3800 is just like having 2xathlon 64 3200's. So those are awesome for multi tasking. One cpu will be handling a game while an other cpu could be downloading music and burning a dvd and you still wouldn't see much of a performance drop as compared to a single core cpu. The Fx seris is just a high end athlon 64 cpu. It is set at high clock speeds and they are really good overclockers. they aren't worth ti though too overpriced. The Opteron was originalyl a server chip but they now make it for socket 939. It has an extra 512kb L2 cache than a regular athlon 64 and they are extremely good at o/cing. They are good performers when you o/c them. You could get an opteron 146 to o/c too 2.6 and it ill be just like having an athlon 64 fx-55, but wiht out ythe $600 more. And Athlon 64's are the basic cpu's by AMD. They are like the p4's of intel. They are good performers. So by performance i'd rate the cpu's like this. FX>X2>Opteron>Athlon 64, but by overall value i'd rate it like this. Opteron>X2>Athlon 64> FX.
