First of all Hi to all and a very merry xmas and new year to you all.
I am looking to upgrade to AM2 and wish to buy a AMD Athlon 64 3500+ but when I checked out a few sites for pricing I noticed one chip was a venice and the other was orleans core? can anyone please help with which is the best ?

Yeah, first you will need to decide which socket your going with,

939=DDR
or
AM2=DDR2

Yes, he said he was updating to AM2. Since Orleans is the only AM2 CPU out of those two, he would need to go with the Orleans.
