Hey all

I'm planning on buying a new CPU to use mostly for heavy gaming and watching movies. I was wondering if there is a mass difference between those 2 models and if there is a difference in cooling as one is cheaper than the other.

System Specs:

MSI K9A2VM-FD 780V Socket AM2+
Coolermaster 700W Power Supply
4 GB Geil RAM DDR2 800
XFX ATI 5770
Creative X FI Xtreme Gamer

The difference is one runs at 2.8GHz the other at 3.0GHz which makes the 945 about 7% faster.

here is the 920 vs 940 in benchmarks (basically the exact same CPUs)

temps would be nearly the same as both are 95w, and gaming would be very similar

the 925 can be OC to reach the 945's 3.0ghz (obviously the 945 can also be OC).

For movies, both CPUs are way more than enough. As for the gaming, with that video card, there will be no difference in games.
