Phenom 2 uses DDR2 tho.Hello, I am in the position to be able to upgrade from an Abit ip35 Pro with a core 2 duo E6600 @ 3.2GHz to a MSI 785GM-P45 with an Athlon x4 635. Would this be worth it even of the motherboard for the athlon might not be a good overclocker? Could i get a good AM3 board for cheap or will this one do for a 15-30% oc? The upgrade cost would be $0 if that matters. Some dude want a new pc for web browsing and found this nice barebone for 300 that includes these 2. I still need to add in memory, HDD(i have many laying around) and DVD(again a bunch). All my stuff looks and smells new and has no abuse(other than overclocking them). What do you think

oEDIT. I found another deal for $20 more, that include memory, DVD, HDD and a phenom 2 x4 920 would that be better? the phenom uses ddr2 instead of ddr3 like the athlon
