Is there any differance between amd dual core 3800 and the amd dual core 4200 cpu except for the ghz differance, or are they just the same.
im going to have a 400gb-500gb hard drive, geforce 6600gt graphics card attached to it and will be playing high graphics games, film watching and editing

as long as it's socket 939, there are slight variations of these chips cores. Do you have links to the ones you're buying?

At this moment in time I'd suggest buying a faster single core 64 bit processor.

any ideas what one would be best to run all my hardware that i have at a fast speed and play high graphic games

For games I'd suggest getting a better graphics card.

Any of the processors listed will be more than capable, just depends on what you can afford.

Although it may cost more, do not put all your eggs in one basket. i.e get a 200 and 300Gb drives
