For a difference of about $50 in price (Athlon $80, Phenom $130), the Athlon IIx4 seems like a good upgrade, but it lacks L3 Cache. The Phenom IIx4 however has 6mb L3 cache. What is the advantage of the Phenom IIx4 over the Athlon IIx4? Thank You

The phenom is slightly better overall, but probably not $50 better.

playing games? you want the phenom. also, looks like you have a full-size tower - any reason you are looking at low-power cpus?

The board won't handle over 89-95 watts.

I wouldn't spend $130 on a Phenom.

The Phenom IIx4 910e is a C3-Stepping -- the Propus is a C2.

C3s typically run cooler and OC higher with lower volts.

see if you can find a used 95w Phenom X4 955 - Newegg was selling a few about two years ago...
