1^+ I would agree for gaming a phenom x4 955 965 wouldn't bottlneck 480 and it gives you extra cash for other upgrades if your thinking more toward productivity then you'd be more statisfied with a core i5 750

^If you already have a LGA 775 mobo then those CPUs makes sense. But you need to OC those CPU to atch up with 470/480.

The E8400 would be a bottleneck as well, unless you have a nice aftermarket cooler ($50) and OC either of them to 3.6ghz+.

Avoid the Q8XXX series as well.
