Opteron 165 over a 3800 x2 I'd say. Ive heard that the opterons are just athlon chips that pass more rigurous tests the the Athlons, thus meaning they are more stable which is what servers want. OCers can exploit this stability by overclocking them fairly far.

Your local computer friends only know what AMD tells them. Opteron is excelent for home use when OCed.

I'll pretend I didn't read that ...

And yes the Opteron series are awesome if you plan on OCing. If not ... I find they are usually better or in the same ball-park as the Athlon 64 or Athlon 64 x2 (depending on if the Opteron is single or dual core obviously) performance wise. But it'd be really stupid to buy an Opteron and not OC.

So we are dumb because we don't want to buy a $1200 CPU when we can make a $300 one perform as good as or outperform it?
