Default AMD cores

Could someone help me with comparing the various AMD processor cores. Mainly the dual core ones. I read the hardware choosing guide, but it's almost 2 years old!

In that price range, you would be better off going with a core 2 duo.

The E6700 is right in your price range.

512$

If you want to save a few $, go for the E6600.

313$

If you got $550, go for the AMD 6000+, it's about a little better than an E6600 at stock speeds.

A little better than E6600 at 240$ more... The AMD chips are geared towards the low end computers at the moment.

Thats still 150$ that could be spent elsewhere. And the E6600 outperforms the 6000+ in most benchmarks. Check tomshardware cpu charts.
