Atlhon X2 6000+ or Phenom 8750 ?

hello folks, i have a problem choosing one of this CPU. i am about to upgrade from Pentium 4HT 3.2.

My problem is, my old PC case has not so many ventilation, only one to be exactly and the Pentium 4 runs so hot, it makes the CPU cooler runs almost 100% most of the time.
So i want to choose a CPU that runs quiet cool even using the stock cooler, and of course they must be cheap.

now from my understanding is, Phenom 8750 is a 45nm cpu while X2 6000+ is a 65nm.. are the differences huge between this cpu when it comes to heats problem?

This is my build:
Atlhon X2 6000+ or Phenom 8750
2x 1GB DDR 2 800mhz
ATI 4850
500W PSU
AM2+ mobo from asrock

  1. What would you be using the PC for ?
    And both the x3 and the 6000 are of 65nm and there are newer CPUs that are 45nm...
    What is your budget ?
  2. There are newer CPUs such as the Phenom X2 550, PII X3 720/710, which are very good...
    If you want still more cheaper, then the AMD 7750 is a good option...
  3. Agree. Windsors are 90nm while Tolimans 65nm Go for Callisto 45nm - the new king of AMD dual cores now!
