Im tempted to upgrade my ageing 3500
but i think im better off buying a new computer.

Top bombing....:-D

You won't see much difference between your 3500 and this 3800 so I wouldn't bother...But for anyone building a cheap Athlon system out there this is superb...

Cheap,cheap,cheap=HOT:thumbsup:

For anyone wanting a mobo to go with this Ebuyer have some starting from £24.95 ]click here

gah. shame its an athlon 64.

i'd like to upgrade the old xp1800+ in my shuttle desktop pc, but i'd need a new shuttle/motherboard to drop this in

still. top stuff for the price!

Damn - bought a 3000XP for this more than this price from Ebuyer just 2 weeks ago.

Sounds like a really good deal...

But unsure if it's compatable with my ATi Radeon Xpress 200 motherboard. :?

could I run normal 32-bit windows with normal 32-bit apps on this?

^^yes

but then is there any benefit from having a 64-bit processor?

I have a 3200+ 64, would I notice the difference with this?

Also, I saw a dual core X2 4600 or something for £50 more than this (or something like that), is it worth getting the dual core instead?

Many thanks and nice deal, £25 is next to nothing.

may notice a slight difference if you play the latest games
its a bargain price but if you can afford the dual core then dont think twice buy the duallie :thumbsup:

no, unless you are running a 64 bit operating system, but 64 is a bigger number than 32 and its them big figures that impress people when talking about your pc so go for it :-D

I don’t find it tempting for a new system unless you’re on a rock bottom budget as S939 is dead in the water. The dual core X2 3600+ is only £19 more and comes with a heatsink which this S939 CPU doesn’t. It’s an AM2 chip so you have a certain degree of upgradeability built in. It’s also a 65nm chip which use less power and they overclock pretty nicely also. £44.64 for one of those is good but they are even cheaper elsewhere; you need to shop around to get the best price including postage.
So the difference once you add a heatisnk is less than £15.

Keep in mind that the bottom has recently fallen out of the prices that AMD charges for CPUs and it doesn’t seem so remarkable. At this point I think they’re happy to get anything for the single core S939 chips.

Thanks - I don't, but I do do a lot of video encoding and converting so reading the other comments too I think I'm going to get a dual core soon.

Only if you wish to use more than 4GB of RAM (unlikely for most people and would need 64 bit OS - and 64bit Vista is very fussy about drivers leading to loads of problems)

all newer processors are 64Bit compatible so dont worry... you can also still use 32bit OS'es but there are certain differnces... one of the main ones being you cant use more than 2.5 GB (IIRC) of RAM, and there is also a minor performance differnce

With quad cores out now, dual cores prices should drop quite soon

They already have; an Athlon X2 3600+ AM2 is now £44. Make sure you buy a motherboard that supports the future quad cores if needed.
