Hey, I'm interested in purchasing an opteron 144, and I'm coming across 2 different part numbers for them on the net... they are:

the ATBOX model seems to be quite a bit cheaper. Are these different cores or something? Also, would it be even worth it to step up to the next 146 opteron instead? Any feedback would be great! thanks a lot in advance,

The AT surfix means that it is an old Revision CG Sledgehammer Core from Socket 940. However, the other one uses Socket 939 and is a San Diego Rev. E4 with an Opteron name instead of being called Athlon 64 (Look at the whole bunch of Threads about these that are around). If what you want is a Socket 940 Opteron 144, try searching for a OSA144BKBOX that uses a recent Revision E4 Core but is for Socket 940.
The diference bewthem the x44 and x46 is 200 MHz, you decide if the price diference is worth or not it. If it is small and you can afford it, it could be worth doing so.
