As a combo item I can buy a 9600 for $50 extra, the only other proc I was looking at is the x3 710 so is the 710 worth $60 more?

BE? I don't know much about AMDs, but I know people have pushed the AMD 9600 BE past 3.0 on air. (From posts here)

If you're looking into upgrading your current machine, then forget the combo deal and get a new 775. (E7200+ or E8400, or possibly a Q6600)

If it's a new machine, what's it for?

well if you can get close to that, I believe a quad core @ 3.0 will last you a while

I bought a new motherboard as I am into photo and video editing and my E4300 wasn't cutting it, its a Foxconn 790FX motherboard so it should overclock well

Would have probably been cheaper to just upgrade to a Quad Core 775. =/

I don't think anyone has a 3.0 9600. They usually get around 2.6, but there wasn't many people who owned them because the were worst than higher clocked athlon x2's.

well the older 790FXs with the SB600 wont oc that well get a sb750 mobo.
and I would say the 710 is worth $60 more. with a SB750 mobo they unlock to quad cores.
yeah 9600s dont get anywhere near 3ghz
or go AM3?
