For the price it is very hard to beat. It will be fine for a general use / light gaming machine.

Alright thanks, i figured it would be a good starter for my gaming pc that im gonna build. Im going to start small but leave lots of room for upgrades.

I am on an X3 440 machine I built for a family member right now and it is a great chip for under $100!

No, no the 445 you linked to is a bit faster. I was just comparing a very similar chip as being great for the money. The 445 is even better.

This is the one I'm taking a chance on:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I know it's only a dual core, but will take the chance. Same price as Athlon x3, but with L3 cache + possible unlock + $20 promo card to use on other equipment. Figured it was too good to pass up! And I already have an extra hsf.

PS the promo card is only available till midnight PST, so hurry if u want one!

Black Edition just means that the CPU multiplier is unlocked. Easier to overclock than raising FSB.

Doesn't have any bearing on whether dormant cores can be unlocked.
