WTB AMD Athlon ii x3 425

I am wanting to buy this as a replacement for the other than ran a good 5 years but finally we had to light the pyre for our little friend.

I never knew how good it was for it's price range until it was gone, compared to newer CPUs for AM2+ sockets, it still can put in work.

I am willing to buy a used one for $50-60 maximum, if anyone has one they do not need anymore and is working, since this product is discontinued.

    You could purchase a new AMD Athlon II X3 455 Processor for $80, and down-clock it to 2.7GHz.

    From what I can tell I am wondering if it would bottleneck a 7790, since the one I currently have from an older system has a passmark score of 400 which is nothing short of horrible.:heink:

    A much better idea :p
  5. I have an Athlon II X3 720 if you're interested. It would probably be the cheapest and fastest solution here.
  6. I have one, it might even unlock to a quad
  7. I apologize guys I already bought something else.
  8. I had a athlon II x3 425 with HD7770, and yes there was a bottleneck. I upgraded recently to a fx-8320, now my GPU is the bottleneck :P
