The Athlon 64 X2 3800+ is likely cheaper than the Athlon 64 X2 4200+ because
it's clocked 200 MHz lower than it's "bigger brother"

It's clocked lower. That's it. Small difference in speed, big difference in
price.

Make sure you want one for the right reasons (video/mp3 encoding, DCC). In
games dual-core has no benefit (so it's essentially a 3200+).

Thanlks.



See:-

http://www.anandtech.com/cpuchipsets...oc.aspx?i=2484

for all the answers.

Looks like a great purchase... when readily available near the listed
price. Several on-line dealers are making out like a banshee by
overcharging by at least 20% for others in the X2 family. The problem
with red-hot products and still-limited-supply. Wait 2-3 months and
all X2 prices should more reasonable.
