Lightbulb AMD 3500+ Winchester vs. 3800+ Newcastle

Hi,
I wanted to see what people think, whether the AMD 3500+ w/Winchester core, or the 3800+ w/Newcastle is better for a user who does not intend to overclock.

Thanks guys!

Yan

i would say the 3500 becuase te price difference is huge and the performance difference is only small.

$100 is still £100, and for not a noticeable difference is that worth it? better off spending it on a better cooling system so u get less noise

Personally, I would not pay the extra $100 for a minimal gain in performance. You would see a difference in benchmarks, but I highly doubt that you would notice a difference between the two CPU's in real world computing.

A Custom PC enthusiast magazine did a test on about 20 CPU's the other month and the top chip with the 3500 Winchester core, one because it's incredibly O/C-able and also because it provides great performance for the price.

No Euro is way better right now. 100 USD is worth about 50 Euro.

And the 4000+ will of course provide better performance, it is a FX-53 with locked multiplier, and i think it has 1mb cache - which is good.
