Ok i just didnt want to be the typical noob lol. im gonna use it for school, games and a little bit of ripping dvds. i know dual core would be nice for the ripping but i have always wanted a fx and know i can afford it :P . i just wanted to see if you guys have used either of these
Well, if you have any interest in overclocking, then definetely go for the Opty. It will overclock as high, or higher than the FX(FX is 130nm), so you'll have two smokin' cores(Opty and FX both have 1MB L2/core). GL
PS. In games, both processors will be bottlenecked by your video card.
