Default Whats the difference???

What's the difference between the AMD 64 athlon 3000+ and the AMD 64 athlon "venice core" 3000+

They're so close in price that it doesn't matter, so which one should I get, P.S its socket 939 and don't say get the 3500+ or 3200+ cause it's either 1 of these...

Clawhammer = first core revision, 130nm die szie
Newcastle = second core revision, 130nm die size
Winchester = third core revision, 90nm die size
Venice = fourth core revision, 90nm die size

each one improves on the last
the Venice core is able to run at higher frequencies than all the previous cores. but that means overclocking though.

Thanks, does this just mean that I can overclock higher? Or is there another benifet?

In other words should I get the normal or the venice, I to intend to overclock but not to anywhere above 2-2.2 ghz...

how about some links to what you are looking at? i could almost guarantee you are looking at the venice core at two different places. get the dang venice core, there is no reason not to. if you were looking at the previous core versions there are a few negatives. they run hotter and they lack some of the instruction sets the venice has are the key points

I'd recommend you get an MSI K8N Neo4-F instead
