  1. I would say the Phenom II X4 840.Because of the missing l3 cache.But why?There shouldnt be that much difference in heat and power consumption between all 3 of them.
  2. im just not sure which to get. they are all so similar...

    You should tell us of the mobo that you wish to get then we could make a good enough decision for you.
    But for a brief comparison chart:
