well over all best value is the 165 if you overclock but the 4400+ is right in the sweetspot of price vs. performance. i haven't seen that much info on overclocked 4400+'s though

all opterons tend to be good overclockers. the overclockability of a processor can not be guaranteed, the only thing a processor is guaranteed to do is run at the speed it is rated for. however it is a fair bet that any opteron will overclock well

I built my system recently and picked the 4200+ the reason ?

Well on the internet where I ordered most of my components you are correct, the 4200 and above was a fair bit of money however I managed to find a local store that was willing to sell me the 4200 for £155 as they had it on special... I thought it was a bargin.
AMD 4200+ X2 OC 2.3Ghz
Club Nvidia 7800 GTX 256megs OC 540/1350
Asus A832n Delux MB
40 gig WD Raptor

^^ A bargain and a half!

The Opterons generally overclock better than the X2 CPU's due to they are made of better silicon. If it was me I would go for the Opteron but that depends on the price. $29 is too close to miss...

Generally AMD CPU's overclock to the same speed in their range of CPU's.
