Ath II X4 640 vs X3 445 +unl - Page 2

post #11 of 12
u can probably find 720BE or 740BE on ebay for cheap. They got L3 cache and possible to unlock. But even with just 3 cores, they're pretty good. Personally, I'd go for 640 or 620.

Thanks.
Yeah im on really low budget. Im young and i dont work.

Like onoz said its even harder to buy potential unlock on eBay. Was hoping to buy from seller who got more than 10 in stock, hopefully shop.

Was reading some posts and looking at charts. Someone said that OC A X4 640 @ 3.4 will match speed of unlocked P X2 555 @ stock. Also the L3 is not that noticeable in games. So basically im trying to save 20$ and gamble on 2 cores. Thats sounds kinda funny. A X4 640 seems better choice.

Cores are more important than L3 in games.
