Opteron 165 for gaming. This a good idea ??


I think you could overclock it to 2.5ghz easy. And the Dual core and
the 2 meg cache should be good.

Its a new cpu so not alot abour ir. Though i will be using it for
other things other than just games :)

But coupled with a 7800GT and 2 Gigs oF LL DDR ram and 2 160 SATA
2:300 drives in raid 0. The system shoudl be somewhat quick \p/


Any suggestions.

I game on an Opteron 148, so I don't know why the 165 wouldn't fit the
bill.

(My next game system will likely be a 165 or 170 chip, I liked the
larger L2 cache size of the 148 over the Athlon64s at the time.)
