Default Amd 4200

http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...ctCode=80725-R



Is this worth the upgrade at this point in time? I ran the cpu stress test on Sandra, the 4200 came out way on top. I am sticking w/ 939 platform for a bit. My vga after all the test and 3d mark score of over 12000 is good enough for now.
I am within hours of ordering...could you guys provide me with some serious feedback pls. Again, I dont plan on getting Vista and I dont think I need to upgrade my mobo w/ 939 socket. thanks.

I have a 4200+ in my system right know. It is socket AM2 though.

It works great and i love that it is dual core. Burns dvds and cds a lot lot faster than my old pc.
Actually you should get the 4400+ twice the amount of cache and only cost a little bit more. I was going to get it, but i could not find one for the AM2 socket.
