  1. You guys wanna help me out a bit, I'm getting laid off next week sometime, and I wanna get a new Processor this Paycheck, I've liiking for something in the $100-$150 Price Range.

    My Current Processor is an AMD Athlon KUMA 7750 X2, I'm looking for either a tri or a Quad-Core.

    I've been looking at a this


    and suggestions would be great!!

    My Motherboard is a BIOSTAR TA790GX 128M.

    If you tried both processors on two different systems with the same Motherboard, you probably would have a very difficult time detecting which CPU is which... unless you are an ardent gamer... in which case you should be into Intel anyway.
    That is a huge reach from $89 to $129... for very little difference. Both are excellent, but not the gaming machines the Intel series are.
    You will be happy with the $89 purchase, methinks.

    Go with the 89 dollar joint, intel is nice, but for the price you'll be happy with your amd processor, goodluck.

    For that price range, I recommend this CPU instead of those Phenom CPUs.

    LOL Greg. ;)

    @magaman598, if you really want a quad-core CPU, I recommend this one. It's not as OC-friendly as the 720BE though.
