Any Opty was meant for a server, but unlike Xenons it can game well, its just that good. My opty 165 can play Half Life 2 at 1024x768 at 117 fps. nuf said.

agree with VG, go for the 165. they seem to overclock a little better than the 170 from what i have read.

no no no get an FX-60, it's the best processor for 939. I'm afraid to say that the only way to get it now a days is off ebay for about $399-$369. Once i get the money, ill probably get it unless im closer to the release of the 790x chipset n Phenom/FX, ill get that instead.
