    Springing for a chip tomorrow, witch one ?

    Help the AMD noob, this will be running 24/7 and probably overclocked of course.

    AMD Athlon II X4 620 Propus 2.6GHz

    AMD Phenom 9850 2.5GHz

    AMD Athlon II X3 440 Rana 3.0GHz

    All seem close in price, witch one will perform best running SMP

    Hate to pick a dud for my first AMD set.

    Thank you for all the support AMD crowd.

    you did good.
    if you would have gone for the 9850 you would have shot yourself...
    btw no one really looks this sub forum just post the thread straight in the amd section if help is needed.

    Thank's for the vote of confidence, figured the 635 @ 95 watts was dam close to the Phenom 9850 in terms of performance so it should be the most efficient choice.

    Any overclocking advise or links will be helpful, i plan to re-use the big Zalman off the old quad rig so it should give give me some headroom.
