How much are you WILLING to spend?

Only a Dual Core 4600? I'd spend a little more and get yourself something close to a 5500. It'll cost a little under $200.

theres no such thing as a 5500+

but i realized that the 4600+ is a Windsor meaning its 90nm..

a little recommendation is the 5000+ Black Edition because of its great bang for the buck, plus it has an unlocked multiplier...

Thanks for all of the replys. You guys are being very helpful.
Im trying to figure out what parts I need by black friday so I can save some more $$. Thanks again guys.

Whats the difference in the black edition and what does an unlocked multiplier do? is that something for OCing?
