Athlon II X2 vs Phenom X4

I was wondering if it would make a difference or acually hurt my system. Which is better a Athlon II X2 240 or an Phenom X4 9500? And no I can't overclock them.

  1. Best answer
    For gaming the Athlon X2 240 should be faster.

    For video encoding and programs that make use of more cores the Phenom X4 5000 should be faster.
  2. So its a toss up right? What if I played games that could use all 4 cores and I OC'd the phenom?
