The E7200 is faster than any of the Phenom tri cores, consumes less power, runs cooler, and is a significantly better overclocker.

After gaming on both Athlon x2 and Core 2 systems I think AMD being smother is a myth.

If they haven't shipped it out yet you can usually cancel a order.

Does it cost money to cancel the order? Will I get my money back?

Like I said, you could argue either way...

Just get what you want... you could also wait for Deneb or Nehalem (but I'm pretty sure that's out of your range)

As long as the order says Pending or w/e you can cancel it at no charge, but if it says charged, or shipped, than you can't cancel.

If it says you can cancel it you should be able to. The only time I had to cancel a order was before it was charged so I'm not sure how it works but I would guess they would refund the money to your credit/debit card.( just a guess though)

If you can't cancel it the Phenom x3 is still a good cpu.
