I hear you.

What's making this so tempting for me, is not that it will be FOR me. I'm planning a custom rig for my Girlfriend for her birthday, and throwing a quad core in there at a cheap price would be great so that A: I don't have to spend double that, and B: it will last her a few years.

And my bad, when I said I had a 955, I meant 965. Fat finger.

You're building a computer with your own money for your girlfriend?

Yeah. What's the problem? That's one of the things adults can do when they have a job, income, and get laid on a daily basis.

LoL. Don't worry about that guy dude. Haters gonna hate. I've bought my girlfriend a laptop for school, and she was the one that got the 5850 for me in my sig rig (for Valentines day). I brag about her all the time


So the 840 probably wouldn't be much of an upgrade from my 620 huh?

I dont understand the 840 being a phenom II either, why??
As far as I knew all AMD cpu's that do not have L3 cache are branded Athlon II and now this!
It's almost as bad as Intel's naming scheme lol

My AMD rig has a nice Phenom II 955 Black Edition in it, but the 975 in theory should be a higher binned chip, so should be capable of a higher oveclock.
Current Build.

That depends...an i5 2400 could be grabbed for <$200 and would be direct competition to the 975BE and heck, even some of the 6 core Phenoms.

No hater here dude. I've heard of countless guys who spend a lot of money on their girlfriend then get dumped after a short period of time.
