    Obviously the faster clocked processor of the same exact series is faster. However 2.9Ghz to 3.0Ghz is less than a 4% improvement in performance. If your not overclocking I would go with which ever you can find cheapest, if your overclockin the higher multiplier in the X4 640 may help.
  2. 640, and hope that you get a mobo that can at least try to unlock the l3 cache, i use a 640 and it did unlock (i was lucky... nto a guaruntee) if you do plan to try to unlock the l3 though get a better cpu cooler as the stock athlon cooler is barely adequite for stock speeds
