hi guys, ive finally decided to take the plunge and replace my ageing 5000+ BE running at 3.2 and to be honest it is proberly a bottleneck on my system now as i upgraded to a 4890. I have had a good look at whats on offer by AMD for my system. Ive just got my windows 7 activated permanently so looking to see what overclocks i can get with a new shiny processor. I see the options as : (links are from Scan and ebuyer, obviously prices will be diffrent at other sites) x4 955 BE stock at 3.2 AM3 reports OC @ 3.6 - 4.0 £145.92 http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/AMD-...ion-Sok-AM3-32GHz-8MB-Total-Cache-125W-Retail x4 965 BE @ 3.4 AM3 reports OC @ 3.7 - 4.2 easily reachable £182.45 http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/AMD-...-34GHz-512KB-Cache-FSB-HT-3600MHz-140W-Retail x2 550 BE @ 3.1 AM3 reports 3.7 + £74.13 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/166518 x3 720 BE @ 2.8 reports AM3 3.6 - 4.0 + (4.0 rare) £100 around that on a few sites. 90 quid on overclockers.co.uk http://www.ebuyer.com/product/159071 x4 940 BE @ 3.0 AM2+ not sure on OC £131.66 http://www.ebuyer.com/product/155714 I dont think there are many others that would be up for consideration. What would be my best buy price/performance and what is needed for future gaming next year or so. I have a DFI DK M2rs AM2+ and can support all the latest AM3 chips. Look forward to hearing your views.
