    Ok I'm about to purchase a new Athlon 64 and mobo with HL2 on the horizon and below average performance from Doom 3 due to my bottleneck CPU. Now I was wondering is the upgrade from 3000 64 - 3200 worth the addition £25 - 30 (roughly $40) in price ?

    thx
    Andy

    well thats up to you lol. what a question? 3000 or 3200

    if you have the £30 why not spend it a little bit faster.. not that you will notice anyway... (you wont)

    well the 3000's are about $119 and I can get a 3200+ for $113 USD...

    Thanks a lot for your replys guys :) ... I think I'll just go with the 3000 (and clock it up). Which leads me to the qustion what is the best mobo to go for if I want to do some clocking? I like the look of the nforce 3 range.

    Yeah I'm also interested where you got those prices neon :D
