Well, are they? they are about the same speed as a 3700+ give or take, but they do require ECC ram. I see them on ebay for 320ish CND, or 280 USD
The answer is no. There aer many differences between the 51 to the new models. Mostly cause of that they don't have the San Diego core.
1: They have the older core, and don't support SSE3, have a smaller L2 cache, and are not the 90mm process
2: Socket 940, not 939
FX51 is pretty dang old now. Its still very fast but be wise to get a Socket 939 based. But be even more wise to wait for the Socket M2's come out.

Yeah, Socket M2 will be great. But you have to tell the people y Agent. Socket M2, mainly, implements the use of DDR2, which Intel has had available for quite a while now...in other words, super fast RAM:eek: , which it is definantly worth waiting for.
Wait till AMD starts producing 65nm procs.
i didn't think they were worth it. thanks for your imput guys.
Hey, no problem, I appreciate the thanks though.
