obviously 180>165 but they both OC to about the same level

the only CPU id consider buying over either of those would be the FX-60 but it really isnt worth the money.


no overclocking: X2 4400+
overclocking: opteron 165
your daddy is bill gates: FX60

the 175 so you can get it up higher than an fx-60 with less chance of using a ram divider (the 175 has a higher multiplyer than the 165)
