yes, and it overclocks well. the 3500+ venice has dropped a lot on newegg, its $201 with free shipping, warranty, and fan and heatsink. thats the one im buying. probably wait for that if u want more performance

Wow, I'm kinda pissed that the 3500+ is only $201 now...I paid $150 for my 3000+, but ah well. It's running faster than a 3500+ and runs super-cool. :) Man, I love my Venice.

I love mine too... its a kick ass CPU :)

I dont think the price has gone down since I bought mine like 6 months ago.

I do have to say I love my 3500+. Running it at 2.6 (260x10) and it's idling at 31C. It's awesome. I'm sure the 3000+ will be great though. If you're not going to be overclocking, you might want to hold out for a 3500. It's up to you though.

The 3200 got knocked down $40 and the 3500 got knocked down $20. Pretty good, but yeah the 3000+ only went down $4. :p

i was selling a 3200 winchester on the FS/FT forums for $120 +S/H (retail box) but i ended up selling it to my brother. i still dont know why people didnt want it. :confused:

you can OC those 3000's easily (from what i hear) so i guess its all about how patient you are, heh.
