    The first chip has half the cache and only a 400MHz bump in speed then the 630, so if you're equipped with a good board, cooling, Memory etc. you can easily exceed it with the benefit of the extra cache.

    Thats a good point too. lol

    Why don't you just try both to see which performs better? Also, how old is old?

    I have the 550 running inside the case now but the heat it gives off is about 40 oc
    On full load the 630 only gives off about 32 OC when running in the same rig
    What i tend two find is the 550 runs very hot fast when doing any gameing on the rig
    But i need a fast cpu for my gameing and i think the 630 just cant cut it or am i wrong
    need in put on this ;)

    go for the 630 as it has more cache which is better off in gaming.
