quote: If you're still using something like an X2 3800+ like I do, a 5000+ for $136 is a big upgrade for such low cost.
quote: Really?1. 3800+ runs at 2GHz, this new CPU has only 30% higher frequency (and a bigger cache), thus I wouldn't count this a big upgrade.2. Ordinary 5000+ has been available for ages, now it's availble for $107 according to pricewatch. Only advantage of this "black edition" is unlocked multiplier.Thus, this 5000+ black edition is neither cheap, not a big upgrade to 3800+.
