There's no such thing as a 3800+ Clawhammer, it'd be a 4000+ Clawhammer if that were the case.

Get a 3000+, I kinda regret spending the extra money on a 3200+ now but oh well. I have a friend running a 3000+ at 2.7GHz @ 1.6v with an XP-90, and that'll school any 3700+ or 3800+.

Intel C2D E6320 / AMD Athlon X2 3800+
Gigabyte 965P DS3 / DFI nF4 Ultra-D
2GB OCZ Gold PC2-6400 / 2GB OCZ Gold PC4000
eVGA 8800GTS 320MB / eVGA 6800GS 256MB
150GB Raptor / 74GB Raptor
2x500GB / 320GB

Look, if you asked about the 3500+ or the 3800+, then I'm sure it's not straining your budget to get a 3700+ when it is middle ground.

Overclocking is never a guarantee, so the people who are telling him to get a low-end CPU and then overclock it are giving him false guarantees that a 3000+/3200+ will hit 2.5/2.6/2.7 easily.

The 3700+ has the specs 2200 Clock Speed/1024 KB or 1MB Cache/2000 HTT. The 3800+ has the specs 2400/512k Cache/2000 HTT. Apparently, the 1MB cache is more valuable than that 200 extra clock speed boost.

The 3700+ is better than a 3800+. If the 3700+ runs at 2.4 GHz through overclocking which I do not guarantee, then it will outperform the 3800+ and do slightly bettter than the 4000+.

The 3700+ should be your choice of processor.
