I'd say go with the 5400BE and overclock it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Just use something better than the stock cooler to do so .

Edit: http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLan... Found the proper page, and he''s right. Sorry about that. here is my recommendation for a good Aftermarket cooler for that chip, I have had one for a while and it has served me well. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... That and the chip that megaman mentioned will run you right under $100. smithereen May 2, 2009 4:33:02 AM I dunno how much OCing a 5400+ will handle before it goes over 89W. amdfangirl a b à CPUs May 2, 2009 2:47:00 PM as long as you don't increase the voltages over 1.35v I think...
