    have about 100.00 to spend and want to improve on a 6400+ that my church is using for Adobe CS. Lots of video rendering. http://www.gigabyte-usa.com/Support/Motherboard/CPUSupport_Model.aspx?ProductID=2579

    Which one would be better for Adobe CS3 price per performance and for multitasking.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103704 108.99 50.00 out of pocket

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103708 79.99 almost no money out of pocket

    and will I see any improvement with the 9750. I haven't ever owned one. This review seems to indicate it would be http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cpus/2008/04/11/amd_phenom_x4_9850_9750_and_9550_b3_cpus/11 as does this one http://www.neoseeker.com/resourcelink.html?rlid=164817 I'm wondering how much fater the 630 would be.


    This is my last choice and a little out of my price range. I know it's an improvement but was wondering will the other two be any better than the 6400+ without spending the extra cash.

    139.99 80.00 out of pocket.


    if you have a better idea let me know this computer will not be overclocked. Money is a issue here.

    after reading some reviews I have the answer. I'm gonna go with the 9750, hes not gaming and with all 4 cores in adobe cs3 and more on chip memory he should see improvement for almost no cost. Atleast while multi tasking and rendering. Answered my own question.

    answered ur own question :)
    anywho 9750 is so inexpensive ,, really is a nice choice
    but at 2.4ghz :(
    i think AMD Athlon II X4 630 Propus at 2.8GHz for $108 is a bit faster and still not as expensive

    looks more like 15 percent and in my case costs about 30.00 more.
