Which AMD Processor shoud I Choose?


Beta member
Hey guys I'm thinking about building a new AMD system this week and just today I noticed that the Phenom II X2 550 and the Athlon II X4 620 are about the same prize (on Newegg and at Micro Center).

I couldn't find any benchmarks comparing the two, so I was just wondering which you would recommend, the dual core or the quad core?

Thanks for your input!
(and please don't say "neither, go with intel". I am already considering that, I just want to know which processor to choose if i do go with AMD. it all depends on black friday sales costs and everything)
