But a 400mhz OC on the 4000 will.
I just think if you have enough money for a 4000+ you should get an fx-55 or downgrade to a 3500+ and overclock.

However the newer 90nm 4000+'s IMO wont be a waste of money

FX-55 = $955, $855 if you go OEM.

AMD64 4000+ = $545

So yeah that 'if you have money for a 4000+ you should get an FX-55' doesn't really fly. We're talking a freakin $400 difference dude.
