Is a Phenom 9600 for $50 worth it?

1602 34
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?

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

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

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?
