I can get a Athlon 64 5200+ for £34.
Heres the comparison to my current CPU from CpuBenchmark.net

Athlon 64 4000+ (My current CPU):
Passmark CPU Mark (higher is better): 654
Rank (lower is better): 601
CPU Value (higher is better): 13.08

Athlon 64 X2 5200+ (Upgrade):
Passmark CPU Mark (higher is better): 1419
Rank (lower is better): 353
CPU Value (higher is better): 25.34

Shall I buy it?
Do you guys think it will do well in Crysis, Assassins Creed, Blur and other Cpu intensive games?

Thanks

Itl help? Thats it? lol

I was hoping it would make assasins creed play better, as its a bit laggy ~20fps. and also blur has terrible gameplay 20~fps

My card is more than capable 8800 GT OC

nah it shud be ok for me... hopefully.

im not one of those extreme gamers, that are very picky about quality and play at 1600x1200 with 8xAA and 16xAF lolz.

I'd be happy with smooth gameplay at least on 1024x768 resolution at high settings

Ahh i received a brisbane model :(.

It only has 512kb l2 cache. How much will that damage performance?

Ive overclocked it from 2.7ghz to 2.8ghz

It idles at 38C and reaches 48C after a 30min Everest system stability stress test.

Also Everest thinks its a Athlon 5400+ after the overclock lol

Yeh it booted up straight away. I was just checking the CPU support list again... and I also realised that it doesnt say that the brisbane is supported....

i guess its more of a 'verified and tested' list.

So Most probably a Athlon 64 X2 7750+ Black Edition would have worked.

Maybe i coulda got it. But maybe it would have been a negligable performance boost compared to the 5200+? also it costs £15 more...

Wot do you think?

Thanks
