I mostly use my computer for multimedia playing/encoding...mainly high def.
Would I notice a big difference in the Phenom over my current processor? Is it worth spending the $185?
Thanks for any input!
You might find it really awesome in multimedia playing. I find myself doing more stuff now than I usually do. Like burnig CD's or movies while surfing and at the same time listening to my iTune. But if you are already satisfied with the X2 6000 then you might want to wait for the Deneb like everybody else that are not buying a phenom now is doing.
