Hello! I currently have a Athlon II X3 450 clocked at 3.2GHz. What I was wondering is, should I put a Phenom II X4 955 and underclock it to 2.6GHz so it takes max 95w, because I have a 95w board and the Phenom II X4 955 that I bought is 125w. One dude did it and he says his pc is running just fine:

So, is it okay to do that and put the new cpu in or do I just leave the Athlon X3 450 there? Is it a upgrade to have 4 cores at 2.6GHz or 3 cores at 3.2GHz?
