Default processor help !!

im having a hard time deciding on which processor i shoud buy, AMD Athlon x2 4200 or the Opteron 170, i kno the opteron is better for OCing but is it equal performance without any OC? so that makes opteron better wen it actually OCs.. or if u got any other prcessor in mind around that price or lower then please tell me. i need a good processor for gaming btw.

It was just a general reply to one of the most pointless threads in the world....

buy which ever one you want... you make the decission which is better. God I hate these posts...


Honestly do product research. Get consumer reports if its that BIG of deal to you... Don't come in here and ask a question about opinion. These topics turn into CRAP right off the bat. USE GOOGLE PEOPLE !!!!!!!

That's the biggest bunch of bull**** i've ever heard. This forum is all about helping people make decisions about products they want to buy. Don't hate on these kind of posts, or just get out of here.

ok dude, how many freakin threads do you need to make, and do you ever search the FORUMS

ARG!!

thank you for your time

the opteron 170 is better cause it has more cache, and you can OC it past 4200 speeds
