I've got a cheapo amd motherboard MCP6P M2+ (just $19 with a video card) but can't find some kind of chart of AMDs processors can you guys recommend a webpage that just simply shows all the cpus in an order from best to worst? There is just too many types. Athlon this Athlon that Sempron, Opteron X2 X3, my head spins, as to which are old ones which are newer ones. I think It's a little easier with Intel. I'm interested in processors for desktops only. TIA

Btw I know some people will be like: "it all depends..." I'm pretty sure this could be summed up into: "this cpu is better than this, than that, then that one... etc."

Socket AM2+/AM2
Supports AMD Phenom II/Phenom/Athlon 64 X2/64/FX/Sempron Processors
Hyper Transport Technology up to 2G
Supports AMD Cool'n'Quiet Technology
It is recommended to use 95w CPU

Here is a listing of processors and capabilities
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_microprocessor...

The big issue will be what CPU's you can find that are cost effective.
To complicate things, different revisions of this board support different CPU's. For example a Phenom II CPU would be desireable, but not nec' supported. Check ebay or your prefered online vendor for CPU availablility.

If it's the BioStar MCP6P M2+ Rev 6.0, they list CPU types on their site:

If you're in the US you can find about whatever you want (and good prices) at NewEgg.com

In Canada, NewEgg.ca

BTW, AMD's performance heirarchy is something like:

Phenom II X4 (Best)
Phenom II X3
Phenom II X2
Phenom X4
Phenom X3
Athlon II
Sempron (Worst)

Same order they have them listed on the Biostar list :) 

Obviously there's discussion between dual core, tri-core, and quad core. Generally speaking though, we're starting to see where quad core processors (especially with higher clock speeds) are really starting to show their performance gains in gaming (Battlefield Bad Company 2 is a great example).

There are some really good results on the first page. In fact, the first result is fairly accurate, although you'll have to sift through some intel models.


I actually did find that web page, but it required too much work on my part to sift through all the cpus and sockets.

Edit: I just realized I used the same wording "sift through" (subconsciously?) Looks bad, but I don't feel like replacing it with something else.

jerrece has it the best of evryone else, also enzo, google can be quite confusing when searching such broad terms for people who dont know how to properly refine searches

amd heirarchy

Phenom II X6
Phenom II X4
Phenom II X3/Athlon II X4
Phenom X4/Athlon II X3
Phenom II X2
Phenom X3/Athlon II X2
Athlon 64 X2
Athlon/Sempron 1xx
Sempron

i find that the athlon II x3 425 is the best of all worlds, but thats just me, gl with the decision
