Is this processor good for a 1st build?

I was going to build a quality system with some low end parts and some high end parts for upgrades.
Is this chip good value for money and would it work in an AM3+ motherboard?
AMD Athlon 620

More about processor good build
  1. This CPU will only work in an AM2 socket, not an AM3.
  2. should go for amd phenom ll x4 965 for gamming
    or intel i5 2500k
  3. Then can somebody recommend me a processor for a £250 budget rig?
  4. Sorry, £300 configuration (max)
    Either platform
  5. This would be easier if you list out the components that you need first.
  6. Athlon II X3 or Phenom II X4 955BE.
  7. One more thing.
    I have an eMachines 3240. For an old PC the motherboard looks pretty modern. What's the upgrade possibilities with this machine?

    Intel GMA 900
    Intel Pentium 42.66gz
    4 SATA ports
    What looks like a PCIe port. It's black and ha a little thing sticking out at the end

    Would it accept something like a Core 2 Quad config or a GFX card?

    You won't fit any core 2 cpus in a pentium cause they use a different socket. It could probably handle some older graphics cards like nvidia 7xxx series, not sure though without knowing the mobo
  9. Ok, what about this:
    Asus P5e3
    Intel Q6600 G0
  10. Old processor / Socket.
