I'm debating on picking one up but not sure if the performance boast is worth it.
I can't justify a new system for a while so I want to squeeze as much performance as possible. I have an AM3 board with a 740BE@3.2ghz/4 gigs of ram. The 4th core is unlockable. Newegg is clearing out it's old stock of PhenomII X4's so it will not be too long before the prices start going up as "legacy" hardware. The OEM is 134.
