Reasons to consider the
AMD FX 4200

Report a correction
Much more l2 cache 4 MB vs 0.5 MB 8x more l2 cache; more data can be stored in the l2 cache for quick access later
Is unlocked Yes vs No Somewhat common; An unlocked multiplier allows for easier overclocking
More cores 4 vs 2 Twice as many cores; run more applications at once
Much more l2 cache per core 1 MB/core vs 0.25 MB/core 4x more l2 cache per core
Much better overclocked clock speed (Air) 4.37 GHz vs 3.43 GHz Around 30% better overclocked clock speed (Air)
Much better overclocked clock speed (Water) 5.08 GHz vs 3.46 GHz More than 45% better overclocked clock speed (Water)
