The AM2 for sure, it'd be much faster than the 805. The only good thing about the 805 setup is that you could upgrade it to a C2D later, but I wouldn't base a build around a future upgrade.

i thought the same: upgrade later to c2d. is this motherboard ok for a stable system? i want reliability, high end is not important --without money:)

Yes, that mobo is good for a stable system. It's not as good of an overclocker as the other P5B's...ie. P5B-E. I did a similar thing... bought the ASRock Dual 775 VSTA and threw in a PD 915. My wife's getting me a C2D for my birthday(which is a week today), but postponing the gift 'til the Apr22 price-cuts take effect. GL :)

Get an X2 3600+ Brisbane, it'll overclock better than that 3800+. You may be able to get a 3GHz OC out of it if that's your goal :)
