Hello,

I just built myself a budget rig with a 7850BE with a M2N32-SLI Premium. Was wondering, how does a 7850BE hold itself against the II X2 series chips (excluding 550BE)? Let's say for moderate gaming (MW2, Crysis, etc.) and multi-tasking?

I notice that II X2's can be overclocked much better but since I have an older mobo that I would like to keep using, I don't know if perhaps maybe I should've got a II X2 instead of the 7850? Even though there isn't official II X2 support from Asus for this mobo.

The 7850 was the same price as the II X2 245 but I went with the 7850 since it had official support and the dude at the store suggested the 7850 seeing that I had an older mobo and that I would get more out of my CPU without the risk/work of figuring out ways for the AM3 chip on the M2N32. The L3 cache on the 7850 was a plus as well.

Opinions? Should I have gotten the II X2? Or will this 7850 meet my needs.

The older Phenom I (K10) based Athlon x2 7x50BE Series CPU's will hold there own. They are good CPU's, and I've noticed, even running dual GPU setups (HD3870's & 8800GT's) they do about the same in games as Athlon II's.

But it most categories, the Athlon II is a clear winner and a better chip.
Gaming on 1600x1200 is not really CPU reliant though. So in Gaming, a decent CPU will usually hold you over.

Athlon II will also run alot cooler.

Mine idles around 20C. Not sure if thats good, but it seems pretty low, compared to my previous CPU's like the 9850BE that I had. That thing was idling at 50C even with undervolting on an aftermarket HS and AS5 :S
