I have an AMD 64 3000+ (Newcastle) in a 754 mobo. Is the highest upgrade on that socket the 3700+? If i upgraded it to that, what performance increases would i expect? What about upgrading to a 3400+, are they any good? And which is better: Newcastle or Clawhammer? Thanks

Highest you can go is 3700+. Performance would increase and specialy in games you would get more FPS and things would load a lot faster. A 3400+ is good and you would still see a increase. Also Clawhammer is better. You can pick up a 3700+ off of newegg for $263 now. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16819103464
