I have the 3800+ X2, very fine CPU, do not in all truth think there is that big of a diff between the two, and you can always overclock any of the items (I have not or will not OC any of my stuff since it voids out the warranty and its enough to run anything at full graphics at 1280 x 1024) but anyways, dual core is the smooth way to live these days =)
