Ok, I am gonna switch to a dual core and I can either get an X2 3800 or an X2 4200 both on socket 939.

I have a DFI mobo and DDR500 ram, so really I want the one that will OC best, and I can't remember if the 3800 is the best OC'er.

Comments?

If you can find one of the golden opty 165s or whatever they were that oced to 3ghz on air i would go with that if it isnt to much money. Otherwise get the x3800.

My 3800+ hits 2.5ghz easy, and could probably go a lot higher, but I like where its at because it keeps the HT at 2000. Your in the UK right, whats the price difference? I would say if the price is close go with the 4200. They will probably have the same core either way, you just get 11 dividers instead of 10 with the 4200

Its about 10 GBP difference.

Ideally I would get the 4400 but can't find any in stock, PC World have em for over 220 GBP the buggers.

Elsparrow check what help accomplish with Ender, @ the Overclocking thread, those 4400+ could be easily get to 2.8g without any problem

They are on ebay in the UK, but they seem to be going for too high a price for them in my eyes.

True, I got a boxed FX-60 for $350 about 2 months ago and now they're running at over $500!!!
