Need to upgrade socket 754 cpu, options?

i have an ASUS K8V SE Delux mother board, and it takes socket 754 AMD 64 CPU’s ,
current cpu is AMD Athlon 3000 64bit …

…im looking to upgrade anyone know what the best option is ?

(don’t tell me to get dual cores cos im planning to get a new super beast in 12 months time, untill then i need something to tide me over)

the amd athlon 3700+ 64 bit socket 754 seems to be the best but i can’t find anywhere that stocks it :sad: …seems it has been discontinued everywhere :confused:

The Venice is pretty decent, and a great value. Would probably overclock quite a bit.

I’d say Turion if your motherboard supports it
