For gaming there is no doubt: 3700+ Have you looked at the Epox 9NPA+ Ultra or the Abit AN8 Ultra? Great boards and typically less expensive than Asus.

concurred... ya waant the 3700 for the gaming rig

but why x800xl?

you'll do better with a x1800 or 7800GT if you can afford it, if not get the 6800GT or 6800GS

I agree with the 3700+ I just bought one a few days ago and I have it OCed to 2.65GHZ and it runs at 29C idle and 36C-39C over load. Its the best $230.00 I've ever spent
