What CPU to get?, help

SO for charistmas , I am getting a GeForce GT240 (I really dont need anything more powerful), I was wondering what CPU to get.

I have a AM2+ board but I have thje latest BIOS so I can use AM3 CPU's, so I am looking for a good CPU (AMD) around 40 - 50 £. Any suggestions?

also I have a stock AMD cooler with Smart fan.

  1. AMD Phenom X4 9950 Black Edition,

    AMD Phenom 9850.
  2. hmm I just had a look at the website my board can take 95TDP max
  3. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007671%2050001028%20600005861&IsNodeId=1&bop=And&CompareItemList=343|19-103-286^19-103-286-TS%2C19-103-248^19-103-248-TS%2C19-103-709^19-103-709-TS%2C19-103-677^19-103-677-TS

    That are in your budget. The first 2 are in your TDP range.
  4. I'd recommend the Phenom II X3 720 BE.. Its a powerful CPU bearing the Phenom II architecture.. It'll give you enough power to snap through your day to day productivity apps and prove good for more strenuous activities such as gaming.. The TDP is also within your target range..
  5. Also I dont use newegg I just go on ebay or maplins
  6. So can any one narrow down the best and most powerful in my price range?, also thanks all ^.^
  7. ^ lol your info is making me angry :p AMD RULES,INTEL =SUPER DUPER $hit

    if one cant afford it, doesn't mean its ***...

    Well... AMD Athlon II X3 440
  8. So your saying im poor?, are you
  9. Lol you should concentrate more on what processor you want.

    Go check reviews of that product and tell us do you like it or not, because that's all you can get in that much money & TDP requirements.
  10. stil whats THE best I can get which is in my price range, the one you stated?
  11. the one i wrote above...
  12. yo, Fetal I really apprciate the help you have served me ^^, but how old is the CPU you stated?
  13. also is there a timeline of the AMD cpu's realsed?
  14. TY SO MUCH ^^ so I get AMD Athlon II X3 440 but how old is this exact CPU
  15. hmm never mind its around 8 odd months old , yes?
  16. Dude, you are awesome!
  17. although the 445 is newer there will probally be bearley any performance diffrence
  18. Is it hard to OC a multi-core CPU or is it the same as single core? becuase im running my spare backup CPU and it OC'd 800 more MHz
  19. nah, its easy. if your board is up too it, you can oc any processor. It all depends on mobo.

    and yeah no gain in getting 445, just waste of money for100mhz.
  20. dude you are awesome ty for all the help you have ggave
