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/

Genearally, no. Dual core games are in the future for the
most part, unless you have another task (job) running
simultaneous to the game with realtime *priority* needs,
there's almost nothing for the second core to do while
playing the typical game.
Larger cache is also of limited benefit- not that it
wouldn't help some but overall it may decrease
overclockablity more than the additional cache itself
Yes it should do well for gaming. As for the other tasks,
they are as yet unmentioned so only you can know if the
Opteron is of real benfit to those more than to gaming.
