up to 2,600 MHz the CPU does bring some additional performance and above that its mostly the GPU limiting the PC ... so I guess you should just pick up the cheapest 2,400 / 2,600 MHz CPU you can find
btw this is the reason for your -1 ....

What about performance in A/V production? What do you recommend? I know that you are extremely well informed and trust your advice...

in my eyes its pretty much equal which CPU you get ... if its an Athlon 64 939 you don't really have much of a choice (in terms of support for SSE4.x for example)
So the only thing you can really influence is the MHz # and the # of cores
I often go for the most MHz for buck rule
and I do recommend a dual core CPU
so if I look at the prices here in germany ...
I would choose the
AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ 90nm Sockel-939 tray, 2x 2.00GHz, 2x 256kB Cache (ADA3600DAA4BV)
AMD Athlon 64 3700+ 90nm Sockel-939 tray, 2.20GHz, 1024kB Cache (ADA3700DAA5BN/ADA3700DKA5CF)
for as single core alternative
which is the best bang for buck you can get for the 939
note: the 939 is dead ... there won't be much choices left sooner or later
if you think of switching the platform
I can really recommend intels core 2 duo generation
I now own a e6750 and I am really happy with it .... I even use the default intel heatsink (which I have never done in the past) because the CPU runs pretty cool ... but you might consider a chip from the new e8xxx series which runs even cooler

I'm trying to get back to where I was with my computer knowledge before the stroke and SO many things have changed. My mind is still in 2006 as I stated before as far as computers go, hence the question about replacing the dead FX-57.
Any information that you or anybody else could give me on building a current system, replacing the dead FX-57 and getting the -1 removed would be greatly appreciated. I am now on disability insurance (Social Seurity here in the USA) and don't have a lot of money to spend.
I thank you, my brother ('s) and sisters in the computer world...

At this place, you still ask: http://www.warp2search.net/forums/replacem...roc-t10183.html
Try to stick to the forum rules, also stop posting in threads, which are "old" and already "done". Thanks.
Anyway, the "-1" will not be taken away.

I've gotten my most of accurate tech advice from W2 which is why I came here to ask for advice on replacing the fried FX-57.
I finally ended up ordering an AMD Opteron 180 Denmark 2.4GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket 939 110W Dual-Core Processor - Retail from NewEgg.com for a decent price of $169.99 and am now waiting quite impatiently for it to arrive sometime next week. Nobody even recommended this unit, which seems to be by far the best option for the money and performance for my needs. Thanks again to all...
BTW to dimvlann: Great cat logo, I love cats, have two now and used to have a grey one that looked somewhat like your logo but with green eyes. She died while I was in the hospital after having my stroke.
