Re: single to dual core
im gonna get the x2 3800+ later when i get the money n i just want to tell u guys that it seems like a waste to get x2 4200+ just to have a 200MHz increase from 2.0MHz. I mean, anyone can OC the x2 3800+ to match the x2 4200+ or x2 4800+, u just need 1) AS5 or higher quality thermal grease n 2) high reviewed, decent, n quality heatsink n fan.
i say get the x2 3800+ n OC it n u will save money, period.
AFTER ALL...........from x2 3800+ on up to x2 4800+, it's just higher clock frequencies increase 200MHz each upgrade but $30-$40 more.
