Default Which AMD version should I get?

Hi guys,

Yeah, I'm not really sure which version to get. Is there much difference between an x2 4000 and a 5200 or something like that? I'm willing to spend a bit more money, but only if it will make a worth while difference.

Sorry to give such a blunt question.

Any help would be really appreciated!

If you can get any black edition version as they have unlocked multipliers which is an OC'ers dream, even if that means getting a black edition 5000+ X2 over a normal 6000+ X2.
