A Dual Core thats Fast & Cheap

AdvantagesInexpensive dual core prossesor - Very low temp

DisadvantagesNo noticeable difference for gaming

"...Temperature I always noticed my old AMD 3000+ processor was running at high temps (about 55 degrees+), I've went through many heatsinks and fans trying to find a quiet one with no luck always had to settle for a high speed fan that made a noisy system. I've tried running multiple programs and applications on my 4200+ processor (more than I need or ever would use) and I haven't been able to get the temp above 41 degrees which means less fans and ..."

AMD 64 4200+ X2 AM2 (2.2GHz) processor!

Advantages Dual Core, Low power usage* and Fast!

Disadvantages Motherboards can be costly for this!

"I used this processor to build a completely new computer for xmas (a present for myself ha ha!) and when i first opened the box it was the usual core. In the package there was the core, cool silver gel, heatsink (fan) and the instructions. I had to buy a new motherboard anyway but be wary the motherboards for the AM2 versions can be rather pricey but the advantage of AM2 means that a lower power usage and so a cooler processor and less fans needed! ..."

Excellent value cpu

AdvantagesGood for vista, fast for every day needs

DisadvantagesNot as overclockable as core 2 duos

"I bought this back two years ago for around £130, back then it was a monster cpu but obviously today, people will say this is no core 2 duo. However this still does hold its place in the market due to the price segment of around £45 now, which is excellent value for money. For someone spending this much on a cpu, its likely they are after a budget dual core system, but any dual core cpu will be fast enough for vista as long as you equip it with at ..." Read review

A GOOD ALL ROUNDER

AdvantagesPrice,ease of instalation

Disadvantagesthe cache, the speed

"AMD have had some bad press over the years and this 4200 processor does not help them. With only a poor 1 mb cache it gets tasks dont but you wont find it doing them in record time. I also find amd products are overclockable but confusing to do. But on the value for money side you cant really go wrong because the price is a lot lower than an intel but unfortunately this is because the intel processor is that bit better. I would also say not to buy ..." Read review

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+

AdvantagesGreat multitasking speed and reliability

DisadvantagesMinimal overheating

"...cool in comparison to other AMD processors I have had in the past, and with a little research can be overclocked significantly with little heat increase. I currently use a small liquid cooling system on the processor and have had great success with it. As far as for gaming, there are other processors out there that would be better for performance, but you are going to PAY!!! For the price, this is probably just about the best Dual Core processor available ..." Read review

X2- True gaming, Real Boosts

AdvantagesHyperTransport boosts PC incredibly, EV protection, True gaming experience

DisadvantagesBest things not for free!

"AMD Athlon 64X2 is True multitasking, gaming, superior graphics and great performance. I have use this to play "Destination Treasure Island" and "Genesis". That's why I call this true gaming. You'll see how much fun with "Hell gate London" on AMD Athlon. I can feel the real Vista experience with 64X2.
