It depends on the application ;) IF you are doing video encoding the Phenom will walk all over the X2. BUT for most apps which are complied (thank your Intel and your HTT) to take advantage/ use only two "threads" (and ONLY 2 threads) the X2 is still much better performer....and a q9450 will probably eat both alive in 9 out 10 apps :(
