Just kicking around the idea of replacing my Athlon II x2 265 with a quad core. Since am3+ bulldozer and socket fm1 came out all am3 stock seems to have disappeared  and even trademe only yields athlon II dual cores. Knew I should have spent the extra $80 when building my current system!

So anyone got a phenom II x4 or athlon II x4 they want to sell? Looking for around $100 bracket. Otherwise I have to save all my pennies and couch change for a new AM3+ mobo and bulldozer cpu.

Cheers
Paul

I could even trade a dual core and cash if you had a system you wanted to keep going. It is fast enough for most things and will sort out HD video and gaming. Being a 65W part, it would probably be good for a media centre or Home server. I just want a bit more grunt for video conversion and more cpu intensive tasks.
