Hey guys, so I'm looking at either buying a new PC or just upgrading my current CPU. The max CPU I can go for is Q6600 2.4GHz which i can get second hand for about 70 pound or new for around 150ish. I was looking at pc from overclockers which has a AMD Athlon II X4 Quad Core 640 chip.

Guess I'm asking which is faster and if the amd is faster is it by enough to make a real difference?

Limitation might be in the BIOS so the chip does not work although the installed chipset supports it.
