Default stilll waiting

been a few days but im still waiting... tryin to decide between x2 4800 or opteron 175, or if theres a better opteron for not a much larger price then that one. this will be all for gaming so take that into consideration. i put this in my old thread for days but no one answered... sorry.

If you're overclocking for for the Opteron, if not, stick with the X2.

Basically if u OC then go for the Opteron, otherwise go for the x2.

I would not suggest the 4800+ personally. Go for a 4400+ and OC it. Or get a Opteron 165 and OC it rather than go for a 175.
