How big of a performance difference is there between an Athlon 1600 MP and an 1800 MP? Would it be that big a difference to make a dual system with 1800s worth the price difference of one with 1600s?

ANApex: not really. I always buy at least one speed grade back from the top, it saves major $$$$.

Agree with above, the difference is there but you probably would never notice it unless running benchmarks.

I wouldn't even buy MP's. You could get two of the fastest XP's and save some major moolah.
