Looking for the best Am3 Cpu for me


Feb 14, 2010
ok im looking for a good Cpu for my build. i plan on playing games like Crysis, Crysis 2 (when it comes out) mw2, Bioshock 2, etc.
ill be using two Ati 5770's in crossfire so i need something that wont bottleneck them.

which of these is the best performance to price wise that wont bottleneck 2 Ati 5770's?
keep in mind im trying to save as much money as possible

AMD Athlon II X4 630 Propus 2.8GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor - Retail

AMD Phenom II X4 925 Deneb 2.8GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor - Retail

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


Well if the phenom II x4 945 is the highest you can afford, i would get that. Although if you can spend a little more then i would get the phenom II x4 955. it's 200Mhz faster and with it being a black edition cpu, it has an unlock multiplier for easier over clocking when you need the extra speed boost.
