Hello, I'm looking for some opinions on what CPU I should get. The two I have in mind are the Phenom II x2 550 and Athlon II x4 620. For the most part, I only plan on using the system to play WoW when I have time, but I like to run Pandora and other kinds of music programs in the background a lot, so based on that what do you guys think would be the better buy?
Both are nice, and both would work well for your needs. If you don't upgrade your computer a lot, then I think I would go for the X4 620. True, the Phenom II does have 6mb L3 cache, and has the possibility of being unlocked into a full on quad, but the 620 is a guaranteed quad core, and will still game well enough in WOW despites its lack of L3 cache
