Hi guys,
I have a two Amd 64 3200+'s [S754]one is a clawhammer, one is a newcastle. I am mainly a gamer, so this will be the CPU's primary task. Which one perfroms better and therfore which on should i keep? they will both be run at stock speed. Any comments would be much appreciated as i haven't been able to find many benchmarks on the net. Thanks!

The faster one probably performs better (it usually does). But I'm an overclocker, assuming both could overclock to the same speed (say, 2400MHz), I'd go with the one that has more cache (clock for clock, it performs better).

Newcastle is faster at stock speed.

I have been doing some research on that since i am planning to get new comp myself. The newcastle is better if you aren't overclocking it seem from most benchmarks.
