Ok My brother has been thinking about upgrading his CPU for a while now, but is not sure what to get. Basically its gotta be cheap, not high in watts, and does give a boost in performance over his current CPU. Its also gotta be a X2 he doesnt want anything else with more cores, and he does not overclock. His current CPU is a X2 4800 2.5GHz, with 2GB of 800MHz Corsair RAM (cant remember the timings) and a ATI 4850 512MB video card. I was looking at the new line of X2's the 7XXX series and thought maybe one of these could be good enough for him, and give a noticable performance increase? and with everything else he wants ^ His motherboard is a > GA-MA770-DS3 http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=2874 I noticed these benchmarks on the 7750BE and thought that was pretty good.... http://www.guru3d.com/article/amd-athlon-x2-7750-be-review/1 If anyone has some ideas on what my Bro should get, post away Thanks Edit: O just to let you all know its just for gaming, 99% of the time.
