So you all know I was going to buy AMD Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition Kuma which was a Socket AM2+ I also made a tread about called CPU Choice : AMD Athlon X2 Black Edition or AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+? first the AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ Brisbane sold out which hasn’t been restock and never will then Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition (which has zero shipping fees I might add) was out of stock too, but I was able to auto notify me when they restock it. I went look for a online store that sold AMD CPUs I found a site called SuperBiiz.com and I found a AMD Phenom X3 Triple-Core Processor 8450 AM2+, OEM for $41.82 +2.35 shipping I was going to buy. I just got an e-mail form newegg.com that says that the Black edition Kuma has been restock which puts me at a dilemma & time is short here so which online store should I buy my CPU from? Should I go with SuperBiiz and buy the AMD Phenom X3 or should I still buy the Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition form Newegg.com shipping and money order clearance is key here because I will pay for it by money order tomorrow.

The 7850 is the better CPU out of the two if there is any gaming going on.

That's true but wouldn't be AMD Phenom X3 Triple-Core be good enough for gaming?

@2.1GHz and not a good overclocker it is going to by worse at gaming but better at multitasking. Whether it is going to be enough is going to be user defined I personally would not buy it.

Only the Gigabyte one will work with DDR2 ram which is the only ram you can run with a AM2+ CPU. The other two will only work with AM3 CPU.

Fill that form, do you have a monitor? Both lists suck, you can do much better.

As damasvara says in his Personal quote "Knowledge is a sword, it depends on the wielder" my Knowledge isn’t big when it comes to building a PC (tell you the truth I’m not even trying to build a pc trying to replace parts in my PC), all I’m trying to do here is to replace the parts that I got from CPUtopia.com with newer ones. Say what you want mosox but my Knowledge tell me just to replace everything in the case with better run parts with a little help from here because I’m not going to spend 5,6,7 $800 on case, mobo, video cards ECT like you mosox.

Based on the motherboards you listed earlier why dont you just get a AM3 X3 like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... for $75 with one of the AM3 boards. That CPU will chew up and spit out both the ones you listed.
No reason to spend money on old tech when doing new build!

+ 1 ^ , I have a 7750 x2 in one rig and a x3 440 in the other , and I can tell you the Kuma cores are useless at overclocking while I can easily achieve 3.5 ghz on the x3 , the list above is superb value
