AMD Athlon 3200 AM2 difference v AMD 3500 AM2

This is bugging me, does anyone know the difference between the AMD Athlon AM2 3200 & AMD Atlhon AM2 3500 as I see they are both 2.0Ghz, 512k L2 cache but there is around £10 more for the 3500 is there a hidden con ? or somthing that really makes a difference for the price increase for the 3500

Looking to buy one for a new build but confused

I went to the AMD site and did a search for `AM2 Socket` processors
click here but there are no 3200 or 3500 items listed.

Are you getting confused between the FX range an 64 range?

its a bit of a puzzle hey, must be a reason because of the prices. No doubt someone can help us further.

Thanks again Johndrew.
