Can anyone tell me if there is a noticeable difference between, an AMD2600, AMD2800 or an AMD3000 if they all had the same graphics card and RAM.

No you probably would NOT notice the difference

if you do alot of gaming benchmarks and have good eyes then you could probably see some sort of difference! it would only be like a couple of extra frames per second or something like that! for normal programs, just probably a couple seconds less loading the higher CPU it is! i currently run a AMD 2800 and got it clocked to 3000 speeds and ive only just noticed a teeny tiny improvement in speed!

I would suggest probably only noticeable difference is price. Having said that, I went through the same thought process in August this year and, took the "middle way" and bought a system with an AMD 2800, which flies.

Thought as much.

It seems with all makes of processor, they bring out one with slightly higher specifications but not much difference except in price.

You have helped a lot, thanks

Go for the 2500 - it's the new Barton core which uses faster memory... and it's only £60 + vat!

Thanks will definitely put it on the list for consideration.

So glad I am not in a hurry to replace my present system, so much to think about before buying new.

BTW the AMD2800 is also Barton Core...

OK guys, thanks for the help.
My main query has been answered.
