    Get the 3800, dual-core is the future of gaming and its starting to catch on, soon games will be written for SMP and your performance will be insanely better than the 4000+. You can easily overclock the 3800+ too, mines currently running 2.6ghz x 2 at only 1.35v.

    one more late vouch for the x2 3800. I'm running one now and I'm still amazed. Running COD2 while downloading mp3s, running antivirus, burning a cd all at once is jaw dropping.....the 2gigs of ram helps too.
