I say wait for the A64 X2 3800+ (or 4000+ X2) which should be out in a few weeks, and in your budget.

A couple of suggestions.......

Get the A8N SLI Premium. It's like 20.00 more, has heatpipe cooling and a few extra features not on the deluxe. It's worth a couple of extra bucks.

I would second the opinion of waiting for the 3800+ or 4000+ X2. Word is they will be officially announced on the 2nd.

I'll be at Siggraph next week, and the AMD booth will be one of my first vendor chats.

the difference is bassicly that you have one core on the venice cpu and 2 cores on the X2 cpu.

So the X2 3800+ has 2x 2.0GHz (4GHz combined power) while venice is just a single core one ;)

I wouldn't use the core designation as a guide or you'll just get confused. Venice cores are single core, but so is San Diego. Also an A64.

X2's are toledo core.

Venice cores have 512k cache, San Diego cores are 1mb.

Easiest way is to think A64 single core, X2's dual core. Less confusing, better tasting.

Isn't there a price drop in August? well at least in Australia there is. And AMD 3800x2 has been listed with few stores too, so the wait isn't long. If you are trying to decide between 3700 AND 3800 You should just wait for 3800x2. It's surely just around the corner. 4000x2 is a mystery though.

offical announcement of the 3800 and 4000 should be together. Probably at siggraph this next week.

yeah, it's a bit complicated but then again I'm bad at explaining, but he asked specificly about the venice core and the x2 differences ;)

as for the X2, we have two different ones ;)
Toledo core with 2x1mb
Manchester core with 2x512k
