I'm working on my first pc build and well I wanted to know which one out of these two should I choose. I'm building a moderate gaming machine. I'm on a budget so if you're going to suggest a chip other than the two I mentioned it has to be under 90 bucks.

Anthlon chip

Phenom chip

^+3. Grab the X3. UNLESS, you are running some programs that are really sensitive to cache. (There are VERY VERY few programs like this).

X3 445. If you are lucky, you'll be able to unlock the 4th core and cache on it. If you are unlucky, you still have a pretty good CPU w/ 3 cores.

The Phenom II dual core offers the same chances of being lucky, but only two cores if you're not.
