Which chip to get before phenom 2?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Because my mobo died, I'm going to switch back over to AMD. I want to upgrade to a phemon 2 when they come out, but I need a CPU to hold me over until then. I want something that can come close to my current cpu, but if that's not possible, just something that won't bottleneck with a 4870.

Anything over a 5000 x2 should do the job and not break the bank letting you save up for that 940 and one of the high end sb 750 boards.

This new X2 is based off current K10 core technology, making it faster clock-for-clock than the other Athlon X2 CPUs.

Go with a 6000+ or 6400+
The brisbane types run less hot and some even say it has better OC capability

Oh, Didn't knew those were released already.
Thx for that

So yeah, go with that one.
2.7 stock isent that bad at all and with a after market HSF it can probably reach 3.2 without much hassle

I think I'm going to go with this one. It's cheap and I might reuse it in an HTPC or something after I get the Phenom 2. Thanks for the info, I forgot that this proc just released.

No doubt about that.

I would definitely jump on this one.

Here's the link again for extra emphasis.

Yeah, it actually surprised me too!

I had no idea they were out yet. Great processor at an incredible price.

Yea, definitely go with the 7750. BTW, a 6000+ will bottleneck a 4870 somewhat (but you've already decided to get another one anyway).
