    Fx55

    Athlon FX 55 offers an average performance increase of 50% over the AMD Barton XP3200+ CPU
    That would mean its equivelent to an p4 6.4GHz wtf?

    Where did you get the 6.4GHz figure from? 50% faster isn't double.

    50% faster than a XP3200 would be in the region of XP4800 if it carried on

    Not quite, but on its way

    Depends on what apps you're talking about. In games, that's probably about right. However, the XP3200 was in practice not a match for the P4 3.2C , in fact it struggled to beat the 3.0C. If you work out the speeds, the Xp3200 exactly 20% faster in core and bus speed than the XP2500, yet it's model rating is 28% higher. Hmmmm....

    I have an FX55 and I assue you it is a GREAT chip, it flys, however I'll be honest not sure it was worth the cash difference between a 4000+

    I have a couple of FX-55s and I agree, if you are not overclocking it's probably not worth the money to go FX-55. Clock for clock the 4000+ is equal to the FX-55, but the FX-55 is strained silicon so it overclocks like mad! The FX does run 200MHz faster stock however (not much for a P4 but HUGE when you're talking Athlon 64s) so if you want the speed without overclocking the FX may be worth it to you, especially if you are using a SFF case with a weak PSU. The FX uses power much more efficiently and thus will clock higher while using less power.

    They are the two fastest chips around and it's hard to go wrong with either.
