I would spend the extra for the Venice. It has the Hypertransport technology which is supposed to increase bandwidth and reduce bottlenecking. The Venice also overclocks better.

Its the next generation of processor after the winchester.
Here's a good article comparing the two processors:

Hypertransport is not new to the Venice core, but regardless, it is the better core. Definately the 3200 venice.

If you can swing it, I would go for a Nf4 board such as this:

The San Diego and Venice cores are the new ones. The San Diego is the same as the Venice but with 1mb cache. Stick to one of those. The Newcastle and Winchester are the older cores.

It is compared to the Winchester.. as the Win doesn't have this technology.
