  1. It depends on what you're using it for; if you're a gamer, you would probably be better with a phenom II, but if you're into multitasking/future-proofing, you'd be better with the quad.
  2. I agree.
    For gaming P2 has an edge due to its 6MB L3 cache.
    That is missing in the Athlon.


    But for multitasking Athlon 2 is ideal...
