Re: Difference between FX-60 and A634 X2 4200?
As for the socket types, older processors use S939 and DDR Ram,
and the newer ones use AM2 and DDR2 RAM. You can check here,
as this site is run by AMD, and has condensed data for their
http://www.amdcompare.com "Desktop", then "View All Products"
An FX-60 uses DDR and is a dual core. (You can tell from the
cache specification mentioning x2 in the spec.) The
FX-60 is a socket 939 processor.
Note that one barebone kit I looked at, had a kick-ass processor,
coupled with the world's worst motherboard, so be prepared to buy
a decent motherboard separate from the barebone kit. But maybe
the barebone is the only way to get the processor you want ?
When you are trying to build the cheapest computer possible, the
barebone products make sense. That is because they couple a cheap
(< $100) processor with a $40 motherboard. But in the case of an
expensive processor, the utility of a $40 motherboard escapes me.
You might just want to overclock for example, and a $40 motherboard
might be wrong for that job.
