    Phenom II 965 BE. ALthough at that price range, the Core i5 750 is serious alternative.

    +1 for the Phenom II 965BE, I'm pretty happy with mine.
    Just make sure you get the 125W with the C3 stepping.

    ditto on oldbrave's comments... i have the 140W version, and while i love it, i'd also like to have the same performance with slightly lower temps using the same cooling setup...

    What is your use?

    965 is good for gaming but if internet or office tasks are your main use maybe a 620 would be good for $99.00

    Athlon x4 620 is as close to performance to the phenom II x4. Price/Performance ratio, I think it is a good choice for the Athlon x4. And, it's not as hot.

    Another vote for the 965BE. Like oldbrave said get the C3 125W version. It not only uses less power but handles memory better. I believe that they made minor hardware changes to the processor to accomplish this. I have both versions and the C3 overclocks memory better.
