I wouldnt, bulldozer only around the corner, Motherboards already released.

Gotta reiterate what canada16 said. In a couple of months (hopefully) you'd regret it. Unless it was dirt cheap (and this isn't).

It might be September when Bulldozer rolls out, but it'll be worth waiting for.
#3
it was around £90 from Amazon a few months ago, if you didn't pick it up then, wait for Bulldozer

If you want one on these soon to be superceded CPU's I'd go for the 2 core version which can (usually!) be opened up to 4 cores on the right motherboard. (Asrock N68C-S UCC GeForce 7025 Socket AM2...about £30)
Will save you £100 toward tyour next upgrade if you think you need to, which you probably won't. (Just yet!)

How can you possibly turn a 2core into a 4core when it's a physical thing ?

I'm no IT technician, but have done it myself. A quick search will tell all!

All the chips are made as 4core from the same die, the 2 other cores are disabled in the microcode of the processor.

Most of the time it's not a physical thing. They will make a huge batch of say quadcore CPUs and then disable 2 of the cores and sell it for cheaper.

It's just easier for them to make in batch like that.

(As annodomini2 said - which I've only saw after I commented lol)
