if im looking at this correctly... the x2 would be better because it has a higher clock speed... but in reality, you cant judge a processor by its speed... but i really dont see any other differences. they both have 32/64 bit capabilities, they're both dual core, they're both very nice AMD processors...

The 4400+ is faster. The Opteron is higher quality and may be able to get higher clock speeds if you overclock.

In short, if u OC then choose the Opteron. On the other hand, if the rig is for gaming without much OC then go for the 4400+. I personally would go for the 4400+.

turtile but what makes you think that the X2 also can't OC. I'd get the X2
