Which is better a Athlon II X2 240 or an Phenom X4 9500? And no I can't overclock them. More about : athlon phenom Best solution blobby91 January 8, 2012 4:57:31 PM 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. cindylo January 8, 2012 5:17:23 PM So its a toss up right? What if I played games that could use all 4 cores and I OC'd the phenom? Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer cindylo January 18, 2012 12:10:32 PM Best answer selected by cindylo.
