The X2-6000 is much cheaper than the FX-62 and faster.
Yes it is...but the Optrons use less power and overclock higher than the desktop versions or even the FX.
My $69 Optron 146 is 2Ghz stock and with out any voltage boost for any part of my system I run it at 3Ghz.
All he needs to do is get the correct socket Optron server chip and set the MB bios ram/cpu ratios and ram settings.
With the setup in my hardware profile I only run 3C over room air temps.
The DFI mb's are far better than the Ausus he is thinking of also.
yeah deffinetly a better GPU, my single X800Xt beats those in sli (550:1200 clocks). Get the 6000+, save some money and get a performance boost. Im with Joe_The_Dr on the mobo, both would be acceptable.
Buy the x2-6000+.I would also purchase the power supply from a company like Thermaltake or Antec or a decent 550watt from Ace,which offers a decent PSU for a good price.But if you really want to run an 8xxx series video card then I recommend the 8800GTS 640 with a Thermaltake 700watt or more power supply.Goodluck.
