I was hoping that if i bought the phenom cpu I wouldn't have to upgrade the pc for just media use and light gaming. I wanted that cpu because its a 45nm 65w cpu and noise is an issue for me. Should I opt for one of these:
Newegg.ca - AMD Athlon II X2 240 Regor 2.8GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
Newegg.ca - AMD Athlon II X2 245 Regor 2.9GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
Newegg.ca - AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor 3.0GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops
Newegg.ca - AMD Athlon II X2 255 Regor 3.1GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM3 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor - Processors - Desktops

and spend the extra dough on better/more ram and a new GPU instead of the phenom?

On a side note, would a 95w cpu really be that loud on stock cooling?
