AMD Athlon II X4 640 vs AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb

Newegg.com - AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor ADX640WFGMBOX

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDX945FBGIBOX

one processor has l3 cache while the other does not.

Both are good processors with very similar specs. It all boils down to 2 questions: Firstly, can you motherboard take a processor with a 125W rating? Secondly, do you think that the addition of L3 cache is worth the extra $35?

If the answer to both of these is 'Yes', then I would go for the 945 model, else the 640 model will serve well.

If you're not planning to do Crossfire, you could go with this one for 1 extra $

Newegg.com - ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 AMD Motherboard

Newer Chipset and Southbridge same price, but only 1 PCIe x16 2.0..

About your concern, it supports up to 140W TDP AM3 CPUs

the usb3.0 i dont need and the sata 6gbps i dont need either, but for 2 dollars more , im highly considering this mobo.

from my knowledge the sata 6gbs should be compatible with other satas but can you confirm this, and same with usb 3.0 and 2.0?

and all of these other features like :
Core Unlocker - Intelligently Unlocks True Core Potential

Turbo Key for Easy O.C. - One-Touch Button for Instant Performance Boost

TurboV - Set New Records with Real-Time Overclocking

CPU Level UP - Easy and Free CPU upgrade

do they really make a difference in cpu performance?



seems nice, ill talk to a friend about it.

whats the form factor? normal atx size right?

Yep, standard ATX, plus, for that extra buck, you'll get USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s something that the 790X EVO does not have
