Are there any architectural differences in memory bus, or anything else between these two 939 cores ? ? ?

AMD Opteron 175 Dual-Core 2.2GHz 1MB (per core)
and the
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Dual-Core Toledo 2.2GHz 1MB (per core) ?

They are priced essentially the same in retail at around $500.

Will the stock HSF allow you to get a 15% o/c considering other components are quality while waiting for water cooling in 6 months or so?

Supposedly the Opterons are cut from better cloth (they OC better). I'd go with the cheaper one personally since they are the same chip more or less.
