Which AMD processor to purchase?


I have been saving up to buy a new PC. So far I have About £105 to spend on a processor. I would like to purchase an AMD one, although there are numerous options which are difficult to understand, for example whether I should get a PII or and FX model.

I can only purchase from ebay.co.uk due to some issues with my PayPal account.

I will be using many applications at once, for example I will need to have Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Google Chrome, and Skype open all at once (all resource intensive programs), the processor will need to be able to handle this well. I'd love to know what would be the best option for my price range.

Thanks in advance.

  1. I would go with a six core Phenom II if you can find one.
  2. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AMD-Black-Edition-AMD-Phenom-II-X4-965-3-4GHz-Quad-Core-Processor-Socket-AM3-8MB-/330716119440?pt=UK_Motherboards_CPUs&hash=item4d00378190#ht_2952wt_1270 - AMD Black Edition AMD Phenom II X4 965/3.4GHz Quad Core Processor Socket AM3 8MB

    probably the best CPU (AMD) you can get in that price range, £89 new and from Dabs through ebay.
  3. If I managed to, would it be better to buy a 960T 4 core (possibly 6 core) as opposed to the 965, from ebuyer.com?
