Hi.

If u don't want OC don't waste the money in a BE CPU, go with a Phenom II X4 945, Phenom II X4 925 or Phenom II X3 720 and rise the budget of the mobo a little more.

This ASUS M4A79XTD EVO and this Phenom II X4 945 are a very good option.

Well specify your the exact use of your rig, if you are using for gaming you won't require much processing power, but if you multimedia applications that are CPU intensive, you will need a good proccy

i will be using it for gaming but i dont want to upgrade again untill 2~3 years so am gonna get the quad core (incase in the future some games require 4 cores i would be in the safe side and wont be needing another upgrade)

isnt the Phenom II X4 965 Better? and its only (100 LE more in my country) and thats like 19$


Well 965 comes only in black edition with 3.4GHz stock speed other wise it doesn't have much difference with 945(3.0), 945BE(3.0),955BE(3.2)

We suggested 945 only because its non black edition to save your money as you won't overclock. You are free to choose any.

Now u want OC so, go with the 955 and safe few dollars because is the same that the 965 but with a drop multiplier to x16.

Now, if u want OC i suggest to u go with a good mobo Gigabyte, Asus or MSI the rest don't have my trust. ASRock is an ASUS company not with the same quality with with good prices.

The 140W use more power, is more difficult to OC, produces more heat and not all the mobos support that kind of CPUs.

A good mobo for ur need and the x4 955 is around $120.
