It's good because you can game on an Opteron and they're designed for servers so you can run a dedicated Halo server or whatever

It's a good price but which one has more power over all?

i voted dualie z-on......

anyways having a dualie is more gangster....... But an amd x2 would be better for the threadstarter... Its just what he wants to do with his computer isnt complex enough to warrant a need for a dual xeon.
