Give us your budget. What OpTioN is referring to in his...err... six.. mmm letters is the Core 2 Duo series (E6300 for $180, and a few more for more money). These are right now the best performing CPUs, and overclock like mad. Even the E6300 overclocked (easily over 3.0GHz) beats most anything AMD has to offer and the D9xx series of Intel.

Give us a budget and we can work out a recommended rig for you.

I believe that those two CPUs will perform within a close range from each others. Really hard to tell which one is the better performance.

I am assuming you are looking at the AM2 version of the X2 4200+


On another note:
Your location states United states???

Give us a website from your country, and I don't care if I can't read it

And a total budget in the curreny and are you building a complete new rig?
