AMD Athlon 3800+ 

Released June, 2004
  • 2.4 GHz
  • Single core
1.7 Out of 10

The 3800+ even bested a Pentium D 840EE in some benchmarks, which to me is astounding considering the price difference between the two, and while the 4800+ is without a doubt the top dog, the 3800+ at stock speeds and while overclocked shows itself to be a great choice.

This is a very nice overclock and the CPU temperature only increased a tad - 29 to 33C!
