Joe, the apu units are about 10% weaker than a higher end phenom ii's.
But they make up greatly in media based platforms, gaming a big plus if you know what you are doing and normal computer work.
Your best bet is too look hard at the apu 3670-3680k lineup and relook at the best vote for fx chips from amd and phenom ii x4's-x6's.
Like most everyone guessed the am3 platform is still far better than what amd has brought us to the table last year.
I am debating right now weather I should keep my apu core or not, I wish I could find a hexacore under 110.00 right now.
Selling my new apu isnt worth it for now, because people want it at a unfair low price.
If you need the power of work,I would look into a phenom if you dont need a work horse, look at the apu from amd.
