I have a Phenom 2 X4 system that is starting to get page fault errors and the resultant blue screens. It would be used to replace that, it's uses are mostly a secondary system next to my gaming system to look things up while I'm gaming and in general is my email , surfing machine. I like the fact that it is easily overclockable , but would probably not given the machine's intended uses. Buying a dual core without hyperthreading seems foolish to me but with a Z97 board I could always change to an I5 down the road if the need arose.
