Hey I know this has probably been answered a thousand times over, but would a DC 2.0GHz beat out/match a SC 2.4GHz in gaming? (not multithread).
See conroe is too **** expensive/far away/expensive for me to build. I want SLI too so that would make a conroe mobo like 250...eeeeek.
So basically I'm sticking with AM2, but I am not sure which is better for me....
AMD x2 3800 @ 2.0GHz for $150
AMD 3800 @ 2.4GH @ $110
Both are great deals, but is the slower speed made up for? I've seen benchmarks come awfully close to breaking even with still a large speed difference when comparing DC to SC. I am an avid gamer though and was wondering what would be a better investment, considering the X2 is rather slow.
Could it OC? Trying to justify/decide....Please help or show me some benches.
