  1. the Phenom II X3, or get the X2 and risk getting a quad core out of it.
  2. phenom II x3 720 BE. Monster.
  3. Best answer
    +1 for the x3 it doesn become a x4 as often as the x2 but even if you fail to get it running x4 least you still have 3 strong cores
  4. I was looking at the charts again what about the AMD Phenom X4 9750 to the Phenom II X3?
