Nice find. Voted hot.

voted hot, though only worth considering if u already on that platform.

sounds good to me, HOT

4200+ also available from Amazon for £41.45

]http//ww…1-1

These were £100 at the beginning of the year. Hurrah for pricewars.

Good CPUs, more than enough for most people. I have a 4800+ I got from eBuyer during the Google Checkout promo, was quite cheap then too. Performs quite nicely. Some pretty decent motherboards available too - HDMI etc too, and cheap.

i wish i knew about computers
cos im using an older pc to run recording software/hardware
and its not coping well at all. i dont even know how to find out if its possible to add more memory to it in fact,which would help a lot
thats looks a very good deal all the same,so i say hot!

Is thee a website that allows you to compare to different cpus performace wise?

I think I ave a athlon64 3200+ although this woulld be a performance difference, I wouldlike to know jsut how much.

The difference would be like day and night between this and the 3200+ i have 1 of these that i paid nearly £100 in december it was a upgrade from a 3000+ which i brought when 64 athlons 1st came out that was on a 754 socket and was nearly £200.

i have a 4600 aswell on the same Am2 socket this cpu supports ddr2 not 1 before anyone asks ive had mine overclocked to a 4200+ speed without it breaking a sweat im tempted to have 1 for my spare board but i already have 4 pc's

good buy.

If I upgraded from a 3200+ 64 would I need a new fan?

hmm whats the performance difference against a athlon 64 3700+ SD ?? been thinking off going dual dore a while now

This is a retail boxed processor. It will come supplied with a fan that's up to the task.

3800+ X2 is 2GHz, two cores
3700+ A64 is 2.4GHz, one core

So on some tasks the 3700+ will be faster, but anything modern and multithreaded will be faster on the former. Also in general the computer will feel far smoother in operation, far more reactive.

A 4800+ would beat out your current CPU in all scenarios.

Note that you'd probably require a new motherboard, and new memory for AM2.

Damn, got all excited before I remembered I need the socket 939 AMD 64 x2.... :-(

Voted hot anyway, then did some searching on Amazon and found I'd need to pay £75 for the same thing.

Overclockers have the skt939 version for £39.94 (£43.22 delivered). It's oem though so you'll need a heatsink and fan

Can fully recommend the Arctic Freezer 64 Pro ]http//ww…993

Great cooler for the money, very quiet when using the controller on your mobo (ie asus qfan)

Here's a nice piece of free (for personal use) software that scans your system and gives you feedback on what's inside - including the type of memory in your system and if you've got any free memory slots:

No your motherboard will not. Yours is Socket A, this is AM2.

If it's a decent but basic motherboard with onboard video/audio/lan for AM2 then this one is pretty good for the money.

Wish there was such a thing as dual AM2 motherboard as in two AM2 sockets on one motherboard, if they do then i wish I had bought that one instead because this is a steal. I paid £72 for an Athlon 64bit 4800+ AM2 2.5Ghz X2 couple of months agoonly 5 left in stock btw.

Rajs, I have the same board, bought it when it first came out. Can I ask why you are looking to upgrade please?

I have an athlon XP 3200 which is old hat now but my system runs smooth and fast for what I use it for. I admit I don't play games, mainly internet, work stuff (excel, word) etc. but I usually have many things going at once - burning DVD, playing MP3, 4 or 5 firefox tabs, email, downloading and, despite its age, the CPU almost never breaks into a sweat. I have 512 MB memory but it was fast stuff at the time - 2 Corsair "twinned" sticks.

Anyway, to the point, sorry! I just thought if you found games slow then it might not be the CPU, maybe the video card or short on memory..?

P.S. I find using 2 hard-drives (actual drives, not partitions) boosted my PC performance (for my uses) more than any other one thing because they work in parallel e.g. converting an xvid video to DVD format when the source is on my normal IDE hard-drive and the destination is my serial-ATA hard-drive is faster and less stressful on my PC. Of course you have to use good housekeeping of files on your 2 hard-drives to get the advantage.

Anybody whos on 939 the deal mentioned by bingsy on Overclockers is still pretty sweet. Shame it doesn't come boxed with a heat sink but the heat sink that came with my 939 AMD Athlon 64 3200+ was pretty basic and only ok. Ended up getting a Zalman 9500 heatsink while the google £10 offer was on which is so much better at keeping it cool and so quiet-barely goes over 35C. Guess its encouragment to anyone to buy a custom Heatsink that is worth its merit as well.

Anybody know if the overclockers price is permant or if its just on offer at the mo. Seriously thinking of upgrading. Duo core should offer a major improvement on speed right? At the mo 64 versions of vista and XP and shoddy and unsupported so the duo-core is a bit attraction.

Thanks for the overclockers info iv'e been looking for a new cpu for my skt939 board great price .

Russ I love that place (well love is too much) but its really good humoured and you learn loads! (about to build my first PC as a relatively normal 14 year old person, saving me several hundred pounds over a comparable Dell, with amazing specs and top of the line components too!) Come and join us!

Seconded my old pc is running on a 3800+ x2 socket 939 and with one of these coolers, House mate uses it runs nice and cool.

Tbh its not that much slower than the core2 duo i have now, but my core2 is a lot more stable (i think there might be a hardware fault on that machine since it sometimes would BSOD memory management despite ram testing fine in various memtest utilities)
