Hey guys,,

I want to choose one of these two CPUs (both are the same price)

AMD Athlon II X4 620
Quad core but low cashe memory and frequency

and

AMD Phenom II X2 550
High Cashe memory and frequency but Dual core


what is the advantage of multible cores over the high cashe memory (or vice versa) ?

note: my pc usage is mainly for Gaming .

so what do u think ??
 
Solution
the Athlon II 620 is better

it is basically a normal quad core Phenom except with no L3 cache

with four cores you are more future proof cuz in the next year or so people will start supporting multi threaded apps and games will utilize more cores. you can also OC the 620 and get better results than the 550
