Your CPU is 5 years older. Even though this only has 2 cores but it is made with newer tech (22nm vs 65nm) hence lower power consumption (55W vs 105W) and also has L3 cache while your does not.

Hello all.
Im looking for a decent replacement for my old AMD Athlon64 x2 4400e because its majorly bottlenecking my GPU. Im looking for some insight on weather or not I should get this processor or the AMD Phenom X4 965BE. Both of them are $99 USD. Im not a noob and I know my PC hardware. Im just looking for some advice. games to be played will be Battlefield 3, Metro 2033, Bad Company 2, Call Of Duty. Thanks all ^,=,^

Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition is definitely better than this one so I would go with it :)

You'll have to replace your mobo for both G2120 and Phenom X4, but 965BE is better.

I think it says this because it might get easily bottlenecked by high-end video cards. But I might be upgrading to this from my crappy amd.

AMD isn't crappy, but Intel sure is good, and it's only 100 USD right now. But then again, a new MoBo… So about 230 USD, About… [If you get a decent Mobo, not cheap stuff]
