  1. For a high end gaming system I would think you would want a Phenom II X3 720 at the very least. It's about the same price as an Core 2 Duo E7500 also.
  2. but would that be recommended instead of the Core 2 Duo E7500?
  3. yes.
  4. Phenom II X3 720 all the way. It's a black edition, it overclocks very well, it's got the extra core over the C2Ds, and overall its a really good CPU. Plus if u go the AM3 route you have several upgrade options whereas LGA775 is maxing out with Core 2 Quads.
  5. Would the X3 710 be any good?
  6. yes it just won't OC as well and you lose 200mhz.
