Do the Athlon CPU's have an L3 Cache? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I'd get a Athlon X4 rather then a Phenom X2. Unless you get the 555 BE because you can unlock it to 4 cores pretty easily.

Athlon X4 640 is a really great CPU, $99 and stock clocked at 3.0Ghz.

^ This, I would choose a X4 Athlon over a X2 Phenom II Anytime, You get more cores to work with for your money

Also just to mention, even the C3's don't overclock well so you'll most likely be limited to around 3.8 ghz if you do intend to overclock it. The cpu IMC is weaker then phenoms. It's still a great value though
