since most games utilize just two cores and the original phenom was so bad, it will be an upgrade. you need to realize that not all phenom II unlock and most web site (not idiot fan boys) have them at 50-50 to 60-40 at best for unlocking.
I do realize this, and it will be an upgrade even if I am not able to unlock the 2 cores right? Also, I am a noob at this so could you explain to me what 50-50 and 60-40 means? :P
