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.

If you can get LL ram at a good price otherwise it really doesn't pay
off in real world usage, the AMD64's memory controllers are so fast you
really don't need super fast ram, you won't  even notice any difference
between 2-2-2-6 and 2.5-4-4-10, unless your hung up on benchmark numbers
and want 2-3 more FPS in games.


Good luck,
4200+ X2 (2.2) @ 2.5 (default vcore)
