I am need of a cheap but good cpu, I was looking at AMD Athlon 64 3800+ Orleans Processor from newegg for $109. What do you guys think of this cpu, is there a better one for around that cost? I dont mind going with Intel cpus so I can handle suggestions from either company. I am a all around computer user. I dont do any video editing through. thanks for any help.

Also dont worry about the socket because I will choose a new motherboard after cpu is choosen. I dont want to spend anything more than $115 on the cpu.

Just got one, with an MSI K9N Diamond mobo. Haven't really done much evaluation, other than it is a LOT faster than my old Celeron 466! Also, got 2x512 MB of Corsair DDR2 800 memory.

Only problem I have is figuring out what parameters to put in the BIOS--there are so many things that can be set! OC'ing is big business! (See my post in the MSI mobo forum.)

Good luck with your choice. I think AMD single cores beat out anything Intel has, but the dual core Intels seem to have the edge over AMD right now.

Assuming that you don't foresee yourself reaping any benefits form dual-core(dual-core is advisable), then that processor will perform nicely. The one stipulation when using AM2 CPU's, is that they really thrive on memory bandwidth, and as such, DDR2-800 is highly recommended. Dropping to lower-speed memory will limit performance to a fair degree. GL :)
