- Bus Speed: 1600MHz

It's a great processor, but I'd suggest getting a dual core AMD 64. The 3800 X2 is nice, but the Opteron 165 is much better for about the same price with amazing overclocking ability.

Get the 939 version. Much better. Make sure the core name is Sandiego.

Yea but with the socket 939 cpu/motherboard you get dual channel ram, pci-express much better overclocking abilities with that core.

socket 754 won't leave you much room to upgrade in the future
