If thats the case, save some bread and go for this:
I have this in my old rig, its a cheap beast for anything. It also has an unlocked multiplier and should hit 3.2-3.4ghz with little effort.
I used to have a 720 BE as well, and I can't recommend it today.
All 720s are revision C2, which are poor overclockers compared to C3, and they have a weaker memory controller.
If not going with an X4, I'd rather recommend the X2 555 BE. C3 revision and AFAIK it has a higher successful unlock rate.
