Default 146 or 3800+?

Hi guy's, I currently have 180$ to use on a cpu. So far on forums im intrested in the opteron 146 for 180$, and the 3800+ for 185$.

Which is better?

I really don't care for the speed as long as it's over 2.2GHZ, Also i will NOT OC it.

I just need opinions: 146 or 3800+?

Based on what you said and your uses for it I recommend you the 3800+.



btw you are incorrect it is a dual core and has high OC potential even though thats not what your looking for currently.
