I'm looking for a best buy. I'm not a very strong gamer, I need deskyop computing and full hd movies on a 32inch lcd.

The e5200 is slower thatn all of the above, but still a good CPU
the e7200 is the faster of the Dual cores, with the 6000+x2 not far behind
the X3 from AMD would be a better option for the HD movies, although the Graphics card would be the better upgrade.

if poss it may, be better to downgrade the CPU option with a small celeron dual core @2ghz (overclock it if necesary), and spend the extra cash on a semi decent G\C (ATI, as they have built in sound through the HDMI port).

so what should i choose? I'll go for ati, but 6000+ ( which kind ) or X3? I guess ati works better with amd now that they are brothers?

Personally out of your options if you won't be doing any overclocking I would grab the X2 6000 @3.1Ghz(Brisbane) It sounds like your more focused on an HTPC than a gaming rig.
