Default Compare These 2 Processors

whats the difference between this amd 4000+ san diego
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103529

and this fx55 san diego
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103527


Besdies the obvious 2.6 to 2.4... and also the fx55 is $300 more ..

is the fx55 really worth the extra money ??

the fx-55 is by far superior, the thing is it probably wont make that much difference for whatever your purposes are because the 4000+ is one hell of a processor as well and if your playing games you cant get much better than perfect. if you want the fx-55 get it just so you can say i got an fx-55. not to mention it will save you upgrading for quite a while.

Thats because with the 4000+ you need to raise the FSB, not the multiplier because it is locked.

Where as with the FX-55 you are completely free to do whatever you wish.

in gaming, it wont make any difference. to be honest, it would be tough to tell the difference between a 3200 and an FX 55 in games.

Especially if your playing on high resolutions with eye candy on.
