well, the opteron can be overclocked hardcore... so it can out perform the XP. If u plan on OCing, and dont mind spending the extra 50-60 bucks, go for the opteron

Opteron 144 = AMD 3200. The opteron is just built better hense why it overclocks better. I have used the MSI K8n Platinum motherboard and it is worth the $100 or so that it is.

If you plan on overclocking get the Opteron.
