Default CPU confusion..

Ok so im researching as much as I can before I build my first computer and Iv learned alot since I've been here...when I was looking for a CPU I was almost 100 percent sure I wanted the X2 4400+...But now after doing some reading I dont know if I should get a single core san diego...I heard they are great for gaming...im just not sure, and not confident enough to buy somthing that exsepensive.....I tried google but I didnt get much....any feedback is appreaciated..Thanks

You ask more questions than anybody .

Opteron 165 would be a good idea,

x2 4400+ you could overclock to a 4800.. lots of good ideas and lots of options. I will let the really smart guys finish this off for you.

Don't worry, asking questions is good.

Oddly enough, the Opteron series are exactly the same as their single core and dual core equivalent Athlon 64 procesor in terms of cache and clock speed, but they are better because they have much better OC ability.

I'd need some serious facts and numbers as far as benches etc to buy an opty...it just seems wierd buying a server CPU for gaming. ya know.
