Hey, does anyone know the difference between the two different AMD Athlon 64 3200+ models?

ADA3200BPBOX $160
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103535

ADA3200CGBOX $175
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103602

I'm planning on buying one of these so any help would be appreciated.

Also, why is the 6800GS PCIE no longer on the newegg website?

wow, those processors look exactly the same. i have no idea what the difference is.

for the video i haven't heard too many good things about xfx, and i have an EVGA and am very happy with it. but i'm sure that xfx is a good brand.

My next question:

I'm either going to buy the
Athlon 64 3200+ Venice w/ the 6800GS
or
Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego w/ the 6600GT

I can NOT afford both the 6800GS and the 3700+.

Any help would be appreciated.

You know the funny thing is, I just looked @ your post earlier today. Thanks for the info.

What is your opinion on my predicament?

3700 San Diego w/ 6600gt
or
3200 Venice w/ 6800GS

Oh, definately 3200+ with 6800GS. The 3200+ Venice overclocks decently (You could get a Opteron 144 or 146 if you want higher overclockability) and the 6800GS would be a much better upgrade than the 3700+.

Well, I just purchased my MSI K8N Neo4-F motherboard & AMD Athlon 64 3200+ from newegg.com

I then purchased the EVGA GeForce 6800 GS from zipzoomfly.com

I'm waiting anxiously for the UPS truck...

All I have left to get is the DVD-ROM, monitor, and operating system....
