Hi folks,

Thought I would run this one by you, I have read various articles over the net with regards to Dual Core CPUs but really and truthfully I am none the wiser as results varie way too much.

Bottom line, I have a choice of three CPUs ....

The Single core Athlon 64 4000+ at under 250 , the X2 4200 at 280 or the
X2 4400+ (at a push) at 350.

Seems to be that the Athlon 64 4000+ appears ontop when it comes to gaming over the 4200, which is my systems main use to be truthful, but with recent forceware changes, would anyone who's gone X2 honestly say it was worth it?

Want to know how you fellas who have sponged the cash feel about it before I make the plunge as this is a one hit deal until M2 comes along.

Cheers,
