Hi, I'm looking to build a new budget PC and I just need some help to decide which one of the two processors is better.

AMD Athlon II X4 640 Socket AM3 3GHz 2MB L2 Cache Retail Boxed Processor
£73.72

AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition 3.2GHz Socket AM3 6MB Cache Retail Boxed Processor
£70.53

Both come at pretty much the same price.

Athlon II X4 has 2 additional cores while Phenom II X2 555 has L3 Cache (6MB).

Any suggestions?

The x3 is best value the x4 is better but the x2 is better is the program can not make use of more than 2 cores
