Not Counting the warranty (although it is important) which CPU is better?
They're exactly the same mate. :P

If you want to hold off just a bit longer, I do believe Asus have an incredible new motherboard coming out shortly, and rumours have been flying everywhere that an FX-57 will be appearing soon, which will be an AMAZING proccesor no doubt.

There is also a ton of stuff that I didn't add to my sig because it would be like a page long that adds more, little, things onto the rig...

An idea: Should I get a 3500+, or 3800+ if I was to buy now, and then buy a Dual Core Toledo CPU when it hits the market?

I really like the 3500+, it's a great proccesor, especially for the price right now. Should be able to get some nice Overclocking from it, and it should suit you just fine until dual cores become an option.
