:?: As a temperary solution, can a AM2 3800+ single core CPU be OC'd on air with no Vcore increase, to match a E6300 (not OC'd).

i think the e6300 is two cores at 1.8ghz
and the 3800 is 2.4 single core

you cant really compare them as one is single and the other is dual core.

Yes, but in relation to gaming generaly with no other programs running.

well then the 3800 would probably be better than the e6300
for gaming. even at stock speeds.

:lol:  Who ahh, somehow I don't think so - not at both stock speeds.

Toms charts testify to this, but I'd love to see a chart or other test with the 3800+ SC OC'd and the E6300 no overclocked with gaming at high quality settings.

I mean the question is in relation to saving $$ in the short term - 3800+ $157 compared to E6300 $255.

The 3800+ OC'd might perform just as good as a E6300 at stock which would be more than adequate for me in the short term.

a 3800+ is only $94 on new egg, oc to 2.8, 3.0 max usually.... if you want to really push your socket 939 to conroe levels then get a opteron 170 for $184... can overclock to speeds that will make it outperform even a fx 74 on some benches (not all, some).

i have a dualcore and a single core both amd
and have not seen any difference in gaming.
maybe my senses are dull :lol:

(3800+ AM2 not 939)

New Egg is overseas northern hemisphere and price y quoted is in US $ isn't it.

In Aus (Aus $ is 79/80c US) and all the shipping etc, probably work out same as buying here.

Benchmark them, then you'll see a difference.
