How does the FX-55 stack up to my 3700? I'm just wondering if it is worth the upgrade. I can get a FX-55 for $139 , Will they go cheaper than that in the months to come?

CPUs are always on the drop....in another month, i'm pretty sure it'll go down more. As for performance, I'm no AMD guy, but i believe the fx55 is a worthy upgrade. Would you need a new mobo?

More overclocking options and a higher stock speed. They are good chips. If you removed the IHS like you did with your 3700+ you could probably get it up to 3 ghz.

It just depends on your steppings. The FX-55s have no multi lock.
