Until programs are made for dualcore whichof these would perform best for the averageuser right now.
Does it matter? I think you can be fairly sure that you would not notice the difference.
I agree with ade.h, for the average user you won't find much difference. I'd go for the 3500 initially, & upgrade (if at all required) to the 3800X2, when more programs will make use of its capabilities, & when it's also most likely to cost much less. G
Thanks for replysI have just seen a review in the latestpc advisor mag which gives the 3800X2 a goodwrite up.
Tick Tock, your heart was with the 3800X2 all along, wasn't it ; ) If you haven't taken the plunge, I'd still recommend the 3500 (if it shares the same socket type as the 3800X2), for the reasons mentioned already. But if your heart is set & wallet can cope, who am I to be a killjoy! Tell us how it goes. G
No i have not jumped in yet but the system ihave looked at is within my budget.
The 3800+ is actually 2 3200+ cores together so if you dont multi task a lot perhaps the 3500+ would be the better option at the moment,although if the X2 3800+ is within your budget a higher Athlon64 would also ie 3800+ or even 4000+Something for you to peruseclick here
