Heres the specs..
Newegg.com - Computer Hardware,CPUs / Processors,Processors - Desktops,Athlon 64 X2,

Don't know amds well but......... I'd assume a hyper transport of 3600 of the 7750 vs the 2000 of the 6000+, would far ouyt due the 2.7 vs 3.0Ghz.

The lower wattage to, would be a plus. But probably the caches are the most difference.

Bottom line the X2 is an old product..

Don't you remember the little debate between you and your "dad"? GHz doesn't mean it's faster.

If you really want to know, the 7750 is the best CPU in that batch.

It's not all about the GHz as i have said before it's about the cores today - and after the last time you dealt with maplin you got buggerd twice avoid the bundles an go with a dedicated PC supplier like Aria or Scan.

Or just give up in general, mate. You always ask for our opinions and ignore them.

The "extreme gamer bundle" is such a joke. 8500GT? Terrible.

Seriously. Give up.

The 8500GT is a ok budget / non gaming card i have the silent ASUS verion.

But in all honesty read my above post and select your components and don't shop at maplin for PC components unless you REALLY REALLY have to.
