Had my mind set on AMD64 3500 but i have seen
a AMD64X2 3800 in a pc mag review is dual core
for power users in which case i can go ahead
with my first choice AMD64 3500

No go for the AMD64 3500 and wait for dual core prices to tumble. I would go for the AMD64 3000 at the moment as the 3500 is still a bit pricey in my opinion.

I assume you are getting a socket 939 MOBO
