Default Re: AMD Phenom II X2 550

the phenom II 550 is about as good as the e7400, it will set you back some with a motherboard becuase you will need AM3, so it is a nice choice actually. pair it with a good motherboard, they overclock quite well. - BIOSTAR TFORCE TA790GX 128M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards - nice board for you to consider.
