    I just got hired... and I was thinking of celebrating a bit by upgrading to a quad core. It would help in some games, and would help in WCG too.

    I was thinking of getting this one, so if you can match that price with something better, or sell me something lesser for a lower price I'll consider it either way.

    AMD Phenom II X4 820 Deneb 2.8GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cac...

    Here's exactly what I'm looking for...
    1. AM3 Quad... no duals that unlock to quad etc, my board doesn't support that function
    2. Must be 95w or lower, due to my board's 95w limit
    3. I'd like to get a Phenom II, but I will also consider an Athlon II. No Phenom I hardware
    4. See #2
    5. Nothing that's been "abused"... put under LN2/DICE/Phase, had a trillion volts run through it etc

    If you have any OC experiance with the chip, let me know. I definately don't plan on pushing volts, so I'll be especially interested in results achieved on stock voltage.

    Nothing free about those boards... I'm not changing my motherboard anyway, too lazy. I'd rather buy a nice quad from some generous soul for like $60 and be happy with that.
