Default Spending wise on AMD athlon CPU processors brisbane

Is it worth spending $10 more for 5400 Brisbane 2.8GHz than the 5200 Brisbane 2.7GHz. I checked the detail and its just the frequency difference. Is it worth pitching ten bucks or even $13 for 2.9 ghz one

The difference of 100MHz between the two is nothing you will notice. Save $10 and get the X2 5200.

Better yet, spend a bit more and get the X2 5400 Brisbane 2.8GHz Black Edition that you can easily push past 3GHz with little more than a multiplier change.
