Best what?

Best for the money?
Best overclocker?
Best at stock speeds?
Kuma 7750 hands down.

$59.99 - $5 (with code CPU345) = $54.99 with free shipping

athlon 7750 kuma. best ocer, best at price/performance, and best clock for clock
the kuma is so freaking cheap

i picked one up, lovin it so far, 3.1GHz with barely any effort
I think that the Kuma was the shellshocker deal yesterday... 10$ off and free shipping...
i have a kuma core.. just replaced it with an x3 8750. the 7750 is awesome. that core has so much potental. and for like 80 bucks.. you can't beat the price.. also its built off phenom technology so its an am2+ socket.. compatible with 1066mhz ddr2 ram... leaves you open for easy future upgrading if you wanna get say an X3 or X4 cpu.
id also say the Athlon 64 X2 7750 Kuma AM2+ have mine O.C @ 3.1 was easy to O.C to 3.1
from reviews ive seen around the Athlon II X2 250 Regor and Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto are O.C to 3.9 ( quick O.C's)
Kuma being AM2+ and 2 others are AM3's so need MoBo that will either run AM2+ or AM3
if your Lucky the AM3 Mobos can unlock the two cores that were disabled
I'm going to upgrade to the Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition Callisto myself
Sinx7.. looked up your mobo and found this link for bios flashing to support AM3 on your board....


Just keep in mind the power requirements for your sock... But if you want to go with a 550BE or a Athlon II ...you can now add those to the list of dual core CPUs you can possibly use...

Happy gaming...
if u wanna get the new phenom II x2 550, there have been OCs to 4ghz and high cache
aww man corwin; u bumped a 3month3week old thread
I personally like my Callisto 3.1ghz stock...works great..and 2 more cored are could be unlocked.
I like my E8400, its an easy ocer and not too pricey
The 550 PHII is very good. I got one but I unfortunately didnt get the extra 2 cores. But I gave it to my brother and oced it to 3600mhz and it flies. So I'd say its very good.
