My System Specs


For under $200, the X2 6000+ is one of AMD's most powerful processors at 3.0GHz. At about $150, the X2 5200+ 2.6GHz is another hard hitter. I remind you that these are 1MB L2 processors. The X2 4600+ 2.4GHz seems like an *okay* choice at around $120, though has a 512KB L2 cache. However, from what I can see, bang-for-buck actually increases as you move towards higher end processors...

In practice, all of AMD's processors are pretty much bang-for-buck units. I'm not a follower of AMD's X2 family, but I could tell you more if you wanted to know about Socket-939 units.
