    Advice needed

    hey
    ive got a question today which i basically need some advice on.
    we've been qouted to get about 50 new pcs at the end of this month and ive been offered a processor which i dont have any knowledge about
    it is a AMD ATHLON 11 X3 425 TRIPPLE CORE.
    is there anybody on here who is currently using this processor or knows anybody using it on a day to day basis.
    just wanna know really if you'd recommend it or should i play safe and stick with core2duo.
    thanks in advance

    Nothing wrong with the processor, it's no performance champ but it's a good budget choice. The Athlon X3 will be a Phenom X3 (Phenom X4 with a disabled core) with no L3 cache. That makes it slower, but cheaper. Pretty low power and cool running too.

    be sure to give me a shout if you would like a comparison quote as I'm sure we can save you some money on those units,

    its all well for alot of people to say they are decent or they are a good budget price, but the thing is , how does it stack up against an intel. those of you who have used it, how would personally rate it against an intel chipset and processor between 1 to 10. i have always stuck with intel processors and think that this triple core could be something different that will work and be more reliable or i could burn my fingers. lol

    to be honest the AMD unit will not compare to a C2D I have run a few systems with AMDX2,X3 and X4 CPU's and none of them stack up against even the slowest C2D , infact even the Pentium Dual Cre seems quicker , well thats my opinion,
