The Opteron does not have 1000Mhz less on the HTT. For one, the HTT that you're referring to is actually the HyperTransport (HT) bus. This bus is Dual-Pumped, meaning that (like DDR memory) there is an instruction on the rising and falling edges of the clock cycle. This means that the actual 1000Mhz speed of the HT bus is effectively the same as a 2000Mhz Bus. I believe the Athlon 64s list the effective speed of the Bus on Newegg, while the Opterons list the actual speed. The HTT is the core system clock (200Mhz on Athlon 64s) and is synonymous with the core FSB on Intel systems.

That said, why aren't you going with the much faster, and cheaper, Intel Core 2 Duo?
i already have invested alot into my 939 rig and im not about to go with a new format all together. i started in january buying a new piece of hardware, every month, until i had everything to finally build it last month.

thanks though for the clear explanation of the HTT explanation and the Intel plug.

I would get opty or fx they are both better than the x2's but they are more expensive
