What is the fastest, An Athlon 64 4000+ or an Athlon x2 4200. Whatever the 4200 means.
I'm buying one or the other today and I'm wavering between the two. I'm leaning towards the 4000.

A bit dated but still relevant:

The Mother of All CPU Charts 2005/2006

It comes down to this
2 x 2200 MHz
1 x 2400 MHz, larger cache

If this is for a gaming PC, you'd probably feel no difference in performance, since almost all games are single-threaded.

The 64 X2 is probably a bit more "future proofed."
