The 560BE (Black edition) also has an unlocked multiplier but if you have no plans to overclock this isn't an issue for you.

The 265 is also a 65w cpu and the 560 a 80w.

If you post your board and budget cpu recommendations can be made for you.

The 560 BE offers advantages if overclocking as beanoslim wrote. If you have no plans to upgrade cooling and overclock, then the answer lies somewhere in what your intended uses are. What does "gaming" mean for you?

Consider going with a Phenom X2 555 BE in stock form or overclocked. It is the same C3 revision as the 560 BE, 3.2GHz and $90 USD. This processor will overclock just like the 560 (in fact EXACTLY like the 560). The Phenom X3 740 BE is also a very good choice if you can find one ($90~ for three cores, unlocked multiplier, 6mb cache).

the problems for me its that i will run this PC under, an inversor, in my country the light often goes out, and come back on in 4-5 hours later...
so... i want the best Price/Performance/Power Compsuntion posible

so i think i will stick with the X2 265 and HD6850 or Hd6870

thanks

The Phenom II processors have Cool 'N' Quiet™ 3.0 Technology "resulting in proven, measurable benefits for businesses and consumers, including reduced power usage, lower energy costs, and greener PC operation". Basically they will scale down when not processing heavy loads, then kick up when needed.

Well if you are sticking with dual core I'd def get the 555 or the 560 over the 265.

Best of luck.
