but I heard the 4800+ was better then the FX-60 from claims of another site that said they test both processors.

Thanks to this forum I now know about the opteron.

also are the 180 and the 4800 similer in price?

the opteron 180 is more expensive. you really need to hurt whoever said the 4800+ outperforms the FX-60. the cores are identical except the FX-60 runs 200mhz faster!!!

how bout the FX-60 Vs. the 180, what do you think is a better pick from that lineup.

remember FX is 2.6ghz and 180 is 2.4ghz

maybe in particular task yes. the 4800+ will spank them at multi-tasking and encoding. clearly the FX-60 would outperform the opteron but i would still buy the opteron, its a heck of a lot cheaper and will easily overclock to 2.6ghz

DDR2 is not compatable with AMD. it is pretty poor as a memory platform. it does allow for higher frequencies than standard DDR but at the cost of tight latencies. there is no limit to overclocking. it depends on skill, components and cooling

edit: they seem to average around 2.6-2.7ghz
