Summary: Take a look at this http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+Athlon+II+X2+280 now take a look at this http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+Phenom+II+X2+565 you can buy a new athlon 11 x 2 280 for $50 its a no brainer.
Summary: If you want it as I did , and can probably afford it , buy it. I did over a year ago and would do so again. I can run all the programs I want - no problem !I BELIEVE YOU WILL EVEN RECEIVE A BETTER PRICE THAN I DID .
Summary: Unlocked all 4 cores with MSI motherboard and am overclocking to 3.85 ghz (17.5 x 220). Just a nominal overclock with this processor. I was up in the 4 ghz range but not stable with my video. I'm not well versed on fine tuning vga and memory settings. I had a quad core at 2.8 ghz and this is a very noticeable difference. Very zippy! A great upgrade!
