would this amd phenom II 545 work better or this amd II x3 425 work better for picture editing in photoshop/lightroom?

Athlon II x3 425

Phenom II 545

or any recommendations? budget for this would be about $150-200 with mobo. Does the 6mb l3 cache make a difference?

Get the X3, more cores, similar in performance clock for clock to the phenom, and with the right mobo you have a decent chance of unlocking the 4th core.

Can't beat that at $71.

Combo deals look pretty light today - Here is an Asus M4A785TD-V / W7-64 OS combo for $180.

GSkill 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 for $72.

Around $450 with your cooler. I suspect it will run 14x250MHz without too much problem. Might unlock, too, but 3 fast cores at 3.5GHz/2500MHz IMC would cut like buddah
