In the end I would find it hard to suggest the Athlon 64 3800+ to a user hoping to buy or build their own system. While the A64 3800+ is no slouch by any stretch of the imagination, the greater focus on multi-threaded applications we are starting to see makes it nearly obsolete already.

Awesome CPU! I have had this CPU for 2 years and never had a problem. It doesn't run too hot on the stock fan heatsink; about 30 degrees idle. It is great for gaming and can run all of todays applications just fine. If your looking for an inexpensive and all around good processor, the 3800+ is for you.
I was a first a little disappointed with this CPU. I really wanted to run new games like BF2142 at the maximum possible setting but the game was not able to run smooth, so I overclocked it. Even if I overclock it, it still wasn't able to do this. Also, if you overclock, be careful with changing volts because some motherboards will break even if you add 1.575 volts, and changing volts and changing clock speed will increase the temperature. As well as the fact that if your computer shuts down too much because of overheating, it will really worn out your CPU, so be careful with overclocking.
It's one of socket 939's best cpu for gaming as most of them are only single threaded... I can only see it as a good value if you have a spare socket 939 mobo around (like me), but then again, it's really fast. Fan is really quiet on top it it.
I did a light upgrade on my parents system they had a AMD 3000+ and I upgraded their CPU to a AMD 3800+ and I noticed a huge difference. There was at least a 5 second shorter boot time loading their system. I dont bother with overclocking. But for the 125 bucks I got this cpu on sale for I definitly cant complain.
got this to upgrade from a amd 3000+ . I noticed a significant increase in speed, in bootup as well as opening programs. As of current date, Jan/07 , this appears to be the best value processor for the price on sale for $108.00.
I upgrade from a 2200 Sempron, Socket A for this badboy, I overclocked this to 3.2 GHz without going over 35 degrees on High load. I would DEFINATELY recommend this card to anyone needing that extra speed boost.
