Get the 270 ONLY if you absolutely have no extra money to spare, or if your getting it for quite cheap. If your looking for a decent improvement then atleast get the 3.3GHz Athlon II x3 455 for $72. However, at $75, the athlon II x4 640 looks like a solid upgrade for you especially in the long run, since its a quad core, eventhough it has a lower clock speed of 3Ghz Can't find your answer ?
