I have purchased both an Athlon X2 7750 BE and a Phenom 9850 BE in the last couple of weeks. I'm waiting on the Phenom since it was purchased yesterday, but basically I plan on keeping one and passing the other one to my brother for his build. Generally, I'm happy with the general performance of any CPU these days, but I'm more concerned about which would be best for gaming. I know the 7750 uses a Phenom core now, but will performance in games be similar? Either one will be used in a 790GX board. Also, I plan on overclocking as much as I can. So overall, which will provide the most performance for my gaming needs?
