Am sorry.

EDIT: Is this some sort of known issue? The link is correct when I go into the settings of the deal.

I've added the link at the top of post neways. Safe Jefferson (ViP2?).

Not a bad deal

Seems quite a good deal. Need to add memory. I wonder if the board is any good?

OK, not a hot deal though, just priced up these components separately and comes to £200... and for a not so great CPU, low-end GPU and budget motherboard, could buy much better than this for about an extra £100. I know not everyone has the extra £100, but what I'm saying is that these components are dull across the board.. might be better to go for a mid-high end mobo, high end cpu for approx £40 more and then add in a graphics card later.

Asrock N68C-S UCC GeForce 7025 Socket AM2+ £34.16
AMD Athlon II X4 635 2.9GHz AM3 Retail Box Processor £76.87
XFX HD 5670 512MB GDDR5 DVI HDMI £66.63
total = £177.66 from ebuyer

much better spec with upgrade path am3 processors & option of ddr2 or ddr3

£23 to buy 2nd hand games
AvP £3 + COD4 £9 + Dirt £3 + AC £3.50 + S/rise £2.50 = £22 delivered amazon marketplace

Absolutely PANTS processor. The original Phenoms had lots of issues as said above you'd be better handpicking the components yourself from scan or ebuyer. The graphics card hasn't got much grunt either, pay a bit more for a 5770 or get a 4850 or similar, saw one on here for about 60 quid recently. The games are OK but stormrise is awful and the other games are so old you could get em dirt cheap if you shopped around.

All in all, not a hot deal for me

Where are they finding these old B2 Phenoms with the TLB bug! Not a patch on Phenom II.

This is a old CPU with large power consumption.
The Phenom II are great. Lower power and more speed!

I looked at the AMD Athlon II X4 635 2.9GHz AM3 Retail Box Processor £76 from ebuyer and went for a AMD Athlon II X2 635 2.9GHz AM3 Retail Box Processor £50ish and unlocked the 2 extra core to make it a x4!

This deal is not great and Ebuyer have a range of low cost fanless card (e.g the cheap ATI ones) and as the previous post said get a decent mobo with good on board graphics and a BIOS that can unlock cores! 20s work to unlock the cores is no time!
