the "Athlon II X4 631" is actually a Llano (Socket FM1) chip, with the on-die GPU disabled. Its not compatible with Socket AM3.


the best chip, just a bit outside your price range at RM 379 is teh Phenom II X4 955 BE 3.2 Ghz:

Next best choice is the Athlon II X4 640 (3.0 GHz) at RM 304

you can also get fx 4100, not a performer for multitasking but perform similarly in gaming..
between, piix4 is indeed the best choice

How about Phenom II X4 840 compared to Phenom II X4 955? And is the Phenom II X4 840 much better than the Athlon II X4 640?

It is 200Mhz faster per core and is the same architecture with the same cache the Phenom II X4 840 would basically be an Athlon II X4 640 at 3.2Ghz and it will work on the board you listed. For the extra money the Phenom II 840 would be a good deal compared to the Athlon II X4.

Don't get that 840. It's just an athlon.

Which one is newer? Phenom II X4 840 or the Athlon II X4 640? I think I'm gonna buy the Phenom II X4 840. Same price, faster frequency, and I will upgrade to higher end cpu later (built-in graphics processor). This is just a test to AMD products since I NEVER use AMD before. Intel is good put the prices is toooo much.

Get the Phenom II x 955.

The x4 840 is not a very good one.
