    zalman cnps 9700 turned down low to avoid noise. ive always used all copper heatsinks and artic silver 5 compound. keep in mind the 6400+ black editions come without a heatsink/fan. ive never used stock coolers anyway.

    The new games like Crysis, UT3 and Call of Duty 4, you'll notice a increase in FPS for sure.

    Sorry to thread-jack.

    I have an Athlon 4800+ also. I am considering upgrading to the 6400+. My mobo is AM2, however it is proprietary and it is LOCKED by HP.

    Can I simply drop in the chip and it will work?

    PS. Yeah I could have built my own PC but the HP was far cheaper. I couldn't build anything with 3 gigs RAM and a 22" LCD screen for $600

    Wrong , HL2 games is CPU dependent big timeeeeee

    my friend went 2.6 to 3.0ghz he got like 20 extra fps.

    he gets 60 lowest , 100-110 avg in zombie mod

    while i get 30-40 lowest... , 60-80 avg , not sure!!


    Many games are GPU dependent... I would stay with the +4200 and wait a year.. for x3 or something?

    is 3dmark06 and is very CPU dependent

    but in games you wont notice a different.. depend what games..


    Like i said he should wait a lil longer and wait for something better.

    amd athlon x2 +4200 will do fine , just get 2gb RAM and will have 0 lag
    just low fps.. but who care about fps it will be playable.
