  • Would it be worth upgrading from an Athlon X2 5000 to a Phenom (orig NOT Phenom II)

    Would I be wasting my money? I can get one for ?65.

    rather no. Ditch the Phenom I . get the Athlon II if you want something better, but I would suggest you to get Phenom II X2 550 Black Edition or 545 .

    I own the 500 myself and they are awesome, I have unlocked the 2 dormant cores and overclocked to 3.8ghz stable

    From an X2-4800 to a Phenom 9850, the difference is quite unbelievable. Go for it.

    Since it's not Phenom II, then I'd say no. Speed gain would be quite marginal.
