  2. what is the best from your experience? someone told me b4 tht amd processor always overheated with stock cooler .. it is true? thnks in advance
  3. The stock cooler is fine for the 370k, wouldn't worry there.

    And the AMD would be slightly better for gaming, because of the higher clock rates, but the Intel one would be slightly better for general computing. Depends what you'll be doing more, or where you want a little bit better performance.

    If this is more gaming, get the AMD one :)
  4. in my place where i live dont have sell AMD Athlon X2 370K 4.2GHz Dual-Core Processor .. but the shop in my place selling this processor .. AMD ATHLON II 64 X2 270 3.4GHZ .. would tht be okay for gaming??

    Yeah that would be ok, that's pretty much just a slower version of the other one.
