The Opteron is better due to its overclocking ability.

so i dont get in trouble for irrlevant posting; here is my suggestions.

Get the Opteron 165, it will OC at least 2.6 which is FX60, though this is not guaranteed, but the recent ones are doing 2.7+.

THe Big Typhoon is better than the Zalman 9500. Trust us on that.
