You would be far better off with a i5 750 or X4 655. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer dknutson December 4, 2010 5:18:46 AM Defanitly go with the newer CPU's. You have nothing to gain w/ the old Core 2 duos. My recomendation: Athlon x3 450 @ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Studies show that only about 3 cores are being used most of the time, and for that speed you cant beat the price. Dont go for the phenom CPU's, there's not a big enough performance jump for the money. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
