Saw this deal for the best 6 core processor that AMD sell for only £150 will probably get this

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.

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If you want one on these soon to be superceded CPU's I'd go for the 2 core version which can (usually!)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.
