I like this processor, Athlon 64 3000+, 1MB L2 Cache, 64-bit Processor for DTR Notebooks , because of his L2 cache . But i don't know if i can use it on a desktop computer . It'll give me trouble ? or It will work?

They work in *some* desktop boards, but they may require a bios update, and without a working (bios supported cpu) chip, you can't update the bios...bit of a predicament.

Also note that those chips are for socket 754, so your memory will ONLY run in single channel. Also note that only certain heatsinks will work.

One other thing, that larger amount of cache is only worth about 200Mhz, on average.

depends what you are doing,

video/audio/graphics will be able to use that 1MB L2 cache, but games wont (atleast not yet neway).

if you are just going to game then go for the newcastle core, if you want to do video/audio/graphics then get the clawhammer.
