Athlon II X4 640 3.0GHz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... I'm leaning towards the Phenom, since it offers L3, and it's more future proof in my head What will perform better? I haven't been keeping up with AMD as I was a few years back Mainly play valve games, (tf2, l4d2, gmod,) & GTA crysis, whatever now and then 1080p Appreciate it More about : athlon 640 phenom 810 dafunklull October 16, 2010 10:35:04 PM phenom for sure. m 0 l Best solution ct1615 a c 105 à CPUs October 16, 2010 11:08:59 PM performance is the same for both, get the cheaper one http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/122?vs=82 the athlon should run a little cooler so OC may be easier and both will become outdated at the same time so don't worry about the better "future proofed" CPU Share Related resources 4870 Crossfire + AMD Phenom II X4 810 @2.6GHz - Forum Phenom II X4 810 2.6GHz vs Phenom II X3 720 2.8GHz - Forum AMD Phenom II x4 810 vs AMD Athlon II 630 - Forum AMD Athlon II X4 640 vs Phenom II X4 925 2.80 GHz Processor - Forum Phenom II x2 555BE vs Athlon ii x4 640 - Forum Can't find your answer ?

I think he meant that the Phenom will perform slightly better when both is OCed to the same clocks due to L3. But Id take the Athlon over the Phenom even if youre OCing, the 810's crippled L3 barely does anything; and the Athlon being a C3 part, will run cooler while having a higher OC. m 0 l wwjoeyd October 24, 2010 11:34:59 PM Best answer selected by wwjoeyd. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
