Opty 170 cause its cheaper, most likely overclocks better/same for cheaper price.

Everyone here will tell you to get the Opty, except me. If you don't feel like dealing w/overclocking get the X2. The 4400+ kicks some serious ***.

Id also say go with the opty 165. I have one in my rig, I have OCed to a 2.5 stable, temps never went above 49C aircooled with the stock cpu cooler, @ 1.44-1.45v. What mobo are you using? if youre not stuck to nvidia products get an ati x850xgto, awesome stats and its cheap (in the Us anyway). Just my 2 cents.
